Congratulations Jamie & the Steel City Kings

Barco's own Jamie Keller - the redheaded library student intern who mans the reference desk evenings and weekends - was a member of the Steel City Kings book cart drill team that competed in the Book Cart Drill Championships at the American Library Assn. meeting this week. The emcees were children's authors Mo Willem and Jon Scieszka.
National Public Radio has a story about the competition, complete with video. The Steel City Kings were 8 students from Pitt's School of Information Science, who dressed as Elvis in black and gold and performed an elaborate choreographed routine with bookcarts. You can see their dress rehearsal in Posvar Hall on YouTube.
Gold book cart went to a team from Oak Park Il who dressed as Valkyries, but the Steel City Kings won the Bronze!.
