  1. Check out Chattahoochee Valley Libraries "Super Awesome Circulation Video"!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pbzn2AgDQ70

  2. You rock, Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library! Thanks for sharing your creativity, talent and love for libraries!

  3. Yesss! Happy National Library Week!! If you dig this, I'm sure you'd love a "librarified" Uptown Funk too: http://youtu.be/J6zcIFUvdJ0 #UnreadBook #DontBelieveMeJustRead

  4. I never watch Parody video's but this one definitely caught my attention – who doesn't like library's?  I just hope that voice doesn't get stuck in my head :I

  5. Well done Topeka and Pawnee (oops sorry couldn't help myself) Shawnee Public Library. You guys are freakin' awesome. A fan from Melbourne, Australia!!!!

  6. Not sure if it's intentional or not, but there are a lot of hidden references to "Swift" or "Taylor" throughout this video including the 1989 quarter used. Well done and insane attention to detail. Libraries rule!

  7. I want to visit this library. The main male star within this video I sense could be a fan of Doctor Who. I have a need to go ask.

  8. I live in Topeka and I applaud you right now! LOL I saw this on 9gag and was looking at the video like, that is the Topeka library. So I had to look it up on Youtube and I was right! You guys are awesome!

  9. +TopekaLibrary, is Shawnee the school in Easton? Because I have friends who go there! (Yay, I'm homeschooled, haha.)

  10. I wish you guys would release this as an mp3. I've had it stuck in my head for the last 2 days.

  11. This is easily the best parody I have ever seen. Great little easter egg details in the background. Great job!!!!!!

  12. This. Is. AWESOME!!!!! All the epic library stuff. #librariesdosomuch Now I just need to convince my librarians to do something similar.
