The Librarians is a comedic television series that aired on ABC from 2007 to 2010. The show follows Frances O'Brien, played by Robyn Butler, who is the head librarian at the Middleton Interactive Learning Centre. She is joined by a diverse and quirky group of librarians who all work together to solve the various problems that arise within the library and in their personal lives.

Frances O'Brien is a stern, no-nonsense woman who takes her job very seriously. She is the glue that holds the library and the librarians together. Despite her tough exterior, she has a soft spot for her staff and often goes out of her way to help them with their personal problems. Throughout the series, we see Frances deal with difficult patrons, understaffing, and even a rival library down the street.

The other librarians who work with Frances at the Middleton Interactive Learning Centre include Christine, played by Roz Hammond, who is obsessed with cats and theatre and often brings her cat to work with her. Brian, played by Stephen Ballantyne, is the library's resident technophile who is always pushing the boundaries of what is possible with library technology. Sarah, played by Heidi Arena, is a sweet but ditzy librarian who often needs to be reminded of her responsibilities. And then there's Melvil, played by Wayne Hope, who is the library's resident historian and often gets lost in the books.

One of the most entertaining aspects of The Librarians is the way that the characters interact with each other. Each character has their own unique personality and quirks that make them stand out. Their interactions often result in comedic situations that are both humorous and endearing at the same time. The show also touches on serious issues such as censorship, privacy, and government surveillance, but does so in a lighthearted and fun way.

Throughout the series, we see the librarians tackle a variety of challenges including budget cuts, technological issues, and even a zombie outbreak. They also find themselves dealing with eccentric patrons like an elderly man who wants to check out every book in the library, a woman who is convinced that the library is haunted, and a local politician who wants to censor certain books.

One of the most memorable storylines in The Librarians involves a love triangle between Frances, Christine, and a new librarian named Stuart. Stuart is a suave and attractive man who quickly catches the eye of both Frances and Christine. The rivalry between the two women becomes the focus of several episodes and provides some of the show's most entertaining moments.

Overall, The Librarians is a fun and charming television series that will appeal to anyone who loves libraries, quirky characters, and good humor. The show manages to take a lighthearted approach to serious issues and provides a unique and refreshing take on the life of a librarian. Fans of the show will be happy to know that it spawned two television movies and a spin-off series entitled, The Unusual Suspects.

The Librarians (2007) is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (45 episodes). The series first aired on July 30, 2007.
