I’m essentially re-reporting this from Bwog but I just had to share with you the wonderful creativity that can be expressed when bored people come together. That’s right, I’m talking about librarians - what do they really do besides help hapless freshmen navigate the scary stacks and put books back in their proper places? Well, Unshelved has a contest every year called “Pimp My Bookcart” of all things, and this year, Columbia pulled out a win!

I’m particularly impressed by the sheer amount of time that must have gone into some of the refits because many of them are incredibly elaborate. Make sure you check out the fire truck, animal crackers, and Dr. Suess machine in the 2008 competition as well as the covered wagon and Mystery Machine from 2007. Ok, time to get back to work and wait until TWG gets back from going out so she can call me.
