Winning UW Book Cart Drill Team Puts on Show Today at College Library

If you are on campus at noon today, stop by H.C. White Hall (College Library) to watch a performance by library school students who have created a Book Cart Drill Team. The team recently won a national competition at the American Library Association Convention in Chicago this week. It will be filmed by WKOW-TV (ABC).

According to Don Johnson, Head of Library Communications at UW-Madison:

The nine library school students and a UW-Madison staff member acting as choreographer organized a Book Cart Drill Team in just six weeks this summer. They competed against more than a dozen other teams, some of which have been performing for years. The choreography and gymnastic moves include break dancing, an Irish dance, and back flips in a precision four-minute drill with spinning book carts. The team is performing in an exclusive show for WKOW, and all are welcome.
