Who says librarians are boring?

The sixth annual Library Book Cart Drill Team Championship was 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 performed themed dance routines with costumes and decorated book carts. The team from the University of Pittsburgh was judged the winner and took home the trophy, a "golden book cart." Other competitors were from Delaware; Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania; 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.
