My corporate friends often ask why I continue to work in libraries with all the cuts we’ve endured over the past two years. I stay for many reasons, and one of the reasons is the staff are just so fun and creative. Christie Buchanan-Wellmon, the teen librarian at Independence Regional Library, put this video together for a contest entry in the CBS Hawaii Five-0 Video Contest. The winner receives a surfboard. While we don’t get waves big enough to surf in Charlotte, the board will be proudly displayed in the teen area. So please watch the video below then vote for Christie and her teens here: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/hawaii_five_0/upload/video_player.php?vid=10503&vs=Default&play=true§ion=videos
