High School Jane Lofton shared this fun "Ode to Librarians" video from Flocabulary. It could be a fun way to introduce students and parents to the school library.
Here are the lyrics from Flocabulary's "We Heart Librarians" contest:
Whoa, look at all these books! Where am I? Maybe this is one of those... libraries. But if this is a
library, then... Hey, wait a second — Who are YOU?
You know us, the librarians at your school,
Media , there’s so much we can do.
We recommend books, yeah, we know the best ones,
That’ll have you all hooked. Now listen, wait, umm...
Nonfiction, fiction, periodicals and sites,
Guide you to , get you so hyped.
Dante had , and you’ve got us,
To guide you on that path when you look up.
Any information for a paper or research,
I librarians, that’s the T-shirt.
We pick media — no tweezer,
And the library just got cool — no freezer.
Whether book club, author reading or a lesson,
We make it happen, no stressing.
We don’t just run the library, we teach,
Search better than , come and find me.
Now before we move along with the lesson,
There are a few misconceptions about our profession
We don’t read all day, our hair’s not in a ,
We don’t all wear , don’t always say
We do love books, we’re the bosses at the internet,
We do provide the freedom to escape the room you’re sitting in
Do you want to know more about your favorite band?
The history of your family? Or your native land?
We’re on a quest to teach you how to find the data,
Thinking critically to help you now and later.
We have the books by the rack, look how they stack,
Huey, Louie, , we know about that. Decimal
Don’t crack the spine of a paperback,
And follow the rules, know how to act.
Bring your curiosity, the sky is the limit,
Grab a book and a friend, get with it — the library.
