Librarians strutted their stuff in the sixth annual Library Book Cart Drill Team Championship in Washington D.C.. This year's "golden book cart" trophy was awarded to the University of Pittsburgh's team. The fun is all part of the American Library Association's annual conference.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

That's where teams of librarians donned costumes and pushed decorated carts around to music at the annual conference of the American Library Association. This year's golden book cart was awarded for the Night of the Living Librarians. The University of Pittsburgh team dressed in zombie costumes and danced with tombstone carts.

It's MORNING EDITION.
