Abstract:

In her article "The Librarian in Rowling's Harry Potter Series" Mary P. Freier discusses Hermione Granger's skills as a librarian and researcher which lead to the defeat of Lord Voldemort. In each novel in the series, Hermione's research provides the necessary information for the solving of the mystery. Throughout the series, Hermione proves to be the only character who can use books effectively without putting herself or others in danger. Hermione begins the series as a child who loves the library, but does not always know how to use it effectively, while Madam Pince begins the series as a stereotypical librarian and disappears entirely by The Deathly Hallows. Hermione's development as a character and scholar occurs as Madam Pince, the Hogwarts librarian, becomes even more of a stereotype and ultimately disappears. In The Deathly Hallows, Hermione acts as the librarian for the search for the Deathly Hallows and the subsequent destruction of Lord Voldemort by not only using a library effectively, but creating her own library, as well as locating needed information outside a library.
