  1. Awesome! It would be so great to have subtitles available too, so that we can share it also in not English-speaking countries for our library patrons! 🙂

  2. Thank you Nashville Public Library team. Excellent work. I have shared it on our page: India's first crowd sourced library 🙂 

  3. Well done, Nashville Library! Check out Friendswood Public Library's rendition of The Fox : Storytime: What Does The Fox Say?

  4. This is absolutely wonderful. Just about the coolest thing I've seen music-wise from librarians. You all really have a very talented staff and should be proud of their musical prowess. Go Nashville, what a great city!

  5. LOVE THIS!  I'm a high school librarian and think it's wonderful how you used the song to promote your library.  Sharing on Facebook to share the library/book love 🙂

  6. Great to see so many librarian in this amazing video 🙂 I'm libraian too in Hungary and always pleasure to see great ideas 🙂

  7. FANTASTIC!! Thank you so much for sharing!  I wish our Library had a large enough staff to do this.  It was ver clever, and great fun to watch!  Always nice to see new innovation from other libraries! Thanks!

  8. Yeah, it would be great… and truthful IF the Nashville Public Library was really "all about the books".

    Truthfully, for a very long time the library department appears more concerned with circulation numbers by way of popular audio, visual and cyber-related mediums to justify its annual budget allocated by the Mayor and Metro Council than in quality reading materials otherwise known as books.

     That's not even mentioning our very hard earned tax dollars purchasing video game systems, large flat screen televisions and other nonsensical items as well as the branches acting as after school daycare centers for youths. Libraries are NOT community or development centers; quit inflating your purposes and thus your budget needs for those purposes.

    I have a grand idea NPL, how about you put OUR MONEY where YOUR MOUTH is and actually make it, "ALL ABOUT THE BOOKS".

  9. Better than the original, much better singer! I disagree with Dustin McGinnis. The library is an information source. It doesn't just have to be books. Why can't a library be an afterschool care center? I can't think of a better place

  10. My teacher showed my class this in school… It was stuck in my head for the rest of the day…

    (This is better than the original by a long shot)

  11. love the Jimmy Fallon (Tonight Show) style music vid cover with classroom instruments by these amazing librarians.  Now this will excite kids for sure!

  12. Really great! Way to showcase that libraries are about books AND MORE! We strive to provide patrons with content they want in the format they want – books, music, movies, ebooks, audiobooks, and streaming content! Well done, NPL! I'll be in Nashville this coming week for a library vendor users group meeting and will definitely stop in!

  13. Do you guys have a movie called teen titans trouble in tokyo? If you do comment back because this is on my favorites:)

  14. This is the best video I've seen that's encourgs reading I love you Nashville Public library I want to see more videos about reading! ❤️

  15. tennesse??   oh  this is the  state  where if you drive with cash  the police   steal it     OH   THAT SHIT HOLE

  16. I can't believe no one commented.  I think it's outstanding.  And I adore the puppets.  It's going to FB now.

  17. Our 4th grade listened to this in library specialist at school and I enjoyed it so much that I showed it to my little sister.
