There are a vast and dizzying range of artifacts mentioned, glimpsed, discussed and curated in the tales of The Library and its denizens, and this is an attempt to codify them. For these purposes, major items are those which play some significant role in at least one "Librarian(s)" storyline and the rest are considered minor.

TV MoviesEdit

Season 1Edit

Season 2Edit

  • The Eye of Zarathustra - An orb of little seeming potency in itself, this is the crystalline key to locating the Staff of Zarathustra, a rod of unlimited puissance. Its directional capabilities are unlocked with 'sun and rue' by Flynn and Ray Glasney.
  • Shakespeare's Quill - Made from a branch of the Tree of Knowledge, this can bring anything written by it to full and independent life, although often constrained by the will of the author. The proto-pen is responsible for the emergence of the first Fictional, Prospero.

The Librarian: Quest for the SpearEdit

  • The Ark of the Covenant - The centerpiece of Judeo-Christian belief, this sarcophagus contained the concrete form of the testament between Yahweh and his chosen people, the written expression of his protection and conditions. (NB In the context of fantasy adventure tales, it also clearly establishes a 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' link to these stories)

Season 1Edit

Episode 6 And the Fables of DoomEdit

Wikia Lib - List of animal transformative artifacts 01

Top of Jenkins' list in "Fables of Doom"

Wikia Lib - List of animal transformative artifacts 02

Bottom of Jenkins' list in "Fables of Doom"

NB: Cassie calculates that Jenkins lists 57 possible artifacts as responsible on his blackboard (pictured) but a number are already in the "Major" section, e.g. The Fountain of Youth (blocked by his hand in the illustration), while it seems redundant to simply copy all the remaining names if no further specific details were provided. Some group qualities were stated as grounds for elimination, but that would be a complex process of proof to establish in detail.

  • Aesop's Lyre - Although granting animals the power of speech, according to Jenkins, it did not impact their wardrobe, and was thus not the cause of events in Bremen.
  • The Genie's Lamp - This was ruled out on the simple basis that "It's never the Genie's Lamp."
  • The Mother Goose Treaty (1918) - Jenkins says that Beatrix Potter wrote this particular armistice in a way that left many parties unhappy. Its effects include unleashing talking animals, ones who when cut open will prove to be stuffed with goose feathers.
