The Bizarre “this might be only funny to librarians, but here goes” post.

ALA had a contest.

ALA would be the American Library Association for those of you not in the know.

And, this contest involved writing a song based on your favorite book.

And making a video and sending it in. 

And they have five finalists!

And they are hysterical.

Especially the one about “Lily and the Purple Plastic Purse”

Though the one about “Harold and the Purple Crayon” is a bit creepy.

But I have the link!

And you can watch too!

    Just to let you know, the contest is sponsored by Gale/ Librareo, not the ALA. The winner will be shown at the ALA conference. (And thanks for the Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse comment..I’m the creator!)

    it sounds like librarians either have a keen sense of humor or have too much time on their hands.

    I’m an elementary librarian so I am an elemetary teacher as well. The teacher in the video is my wife who teaches third grade. As far as a “keen sense of humor” or “too much time on their hands,” I’ll have to say the former 😉 BTW, our video won the competition!
