Dancing librarians invade D.C.

By Washington Post Editors

Who says librarians are boring?

The sixth annual Library Book Cart Drill Team Championship is being held Sunday afternoon in Washington. It's one of the less serious events at the American Library Association's annual conference, which began Thursday and runs until Tuesday at the Washington Convention Center.

Drill teams made up of library workers will perform themed dance routines with costumes and decorated book carts. This year's competitors are from Delaware; Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania; the University of Pittsburgh; Midlothian, Texas.; and Roselle, N.J.

The library association says the drill teams are a great way to show communities that libraries are fun. The teams can be found at parades and festivals and travel to schools to promote literacy.
