This Bookish Parody Of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” Is Stuck In My Head…

Libraries are about more than simply checking out books. And believe it or not, librarians are also about more than cardigans and glasses on chains (whaaaaat?).

The staff at the Shoalhaven Library in Nowra, Australia, wants to change people’s minds about this and they are not being subtle about it. They have created an amazing tribute to libraries and the people who run them.

In this music video, they point out proper care for books, the fact that many libraries are run by volunteers, and the special events they throw for the community (among other things). The best part is that they do so by rewriting the lyrics to Queen’s rock anthem, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It is sooooooo creative! Rock on, Librarians of the world. And keep on rocking on, Shoalhaven!

Be sure to check out this other musical parody by some librarians in the States…
