    Why is it that librarians are always portrayed as females? Plenty of us are guys, and we work just as hard as women.

    Yes, well, 80% of us are female (in the United States, anyway). I think most people are aware of this on some level, so portraying a librarian as a woman is useful shorthand. If it makes you feel any better, there’s a funny strip out there called Unshelved. The main character is a male YA librarian:
