I Am A Librarian Video From I Love Libraries

It has been a while since I've posted singing librarian videos and there is no time like the present to show passions for information with a 1/3 or 2/4 beat. This is a captioned video sung to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy on why librarians are important and how cool it is to be one.

This video was sponsored by the ALA Office of Diversity in support of the Spectrum Scholarships. To be eligible for a Spectrum Scholarship (from the website):
