Screw dance libraries, dancing in libraries (um...haven't done that post yet, but you HAVEN'T LIVED till you've seen a crazy lady dancing at a computer in a library), and screw dancing for, about or because of libraries. Why bother, when in every tired corner of our bedraggled country one can stumble upon a LIBRARY BOOK CART DRILL TEAM. I kid you not. From Texas to Ohio to California, librarians and their beloved carts compete for the title of Library Book Cart Drill Champion. They COMPETE! IN PUBLIC! I feel the twang of an adrenalin rush just thinking about it.
If there is a God they will have a course on this in library school. Like, "Cart Choreography 101." Or, "Applied Cart Drilling for Special Librarians."
Check out Madonna's Material Girl.
And who can resist the chutzpah of these ladies in Get Down With Your Funky Shelf.
And my personal favorite: I Want To Be a Librarian.
Okay, so this next one isn't a book cart drill team, but came up in my YouTube search even though I specifically said "library cart drill team" and I LOVE stepping and these girls are awesome and so are the girls in the video that automatically pops up when this one is done. Where was I? Oh, yeah. Watch them anyway. Even if they're not librarians. And don't have book carts.
