Topeka Library’s Taylor Swift Parody: “Check It Out”

Rachel Smalter Hall may be a professional Book Rioter, but she still hangs out in the public librarian clubhouse. Two of her top three loves include audiobooks and knitting, and her favorite song is Cold Hearted Snake as performed by Alyssa Edwards and Coco Montrese on season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She co-runs a boozy book club in Lawrence, Kansas, in her spare time. Twitter: @rach_smalls Website: Rachel Smalter Hall

We love libraries, Taylor Swift, and Kansas. And we couldn’t be more thrilled to see all three come together in this AH-MAZ-ING parody of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” by Topeka Shawnee County Public Library!

TSCPL crafted “Check It Out” in celebration of National Library Week, debunking stereotypes about public libraries and showing just how much fun your goofy, beloved public servants are getting up to in the stacks. And they nailed it with all the Taylor Swift “cameos” they worked into the footage.
