Even librarians can’t resist the power of this song.
Libraries are about more than simply checking out books. And believe it or not, librarians are also about more than cardigans and glasses on chains (whaaaaat?). Oh yeah, you heard us right. There’s so much more to it than that!
The staff at the Shoalhaven Library in Nowra, Australia, want to change people’s minds about what libraries are all about, and they are not being subtle about it. They have created an amazing tribute to libraries and the people who run them. And we think it’s absolutely spectacular.
In this music video, they point out proper care for books, the fact that many libraries are run by volunteers, and the special events they throw for the community (among other things).
But the best part is that they do so by rewriting the lyrics to Queen’s rock anthem, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It is sooooooo creative! Rock on, librarians of the world. And keep on rocking on, Shoalhaven!
