Alice and the Ghost Librarian in Ghostbusters

The library is the first place we see the ghosts in Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters — and the film boasts not just one, but two librarians we love. Alice Drummond’s librarian looks like your stereotypical meek and mousy bookworm, but she works at the New York City Public Library so that makes her a badass. She also claims that her uncle believes he’s St. Jerome — the patron saint of librarians and libraries. Better yet is the ghostly librarian who shushes and scares the Ghostbusters during an investigation.
