DC Public Library Staff Debut “Happy” Music Video On YouTube

While most of the LJ and SLJ team are based in New York City, infoDOCKET comes to you from the from just outside the Washington D.C. Beltway (literally) in suburban Washington D.C.

When we’re not on the road we often get our work done at one of a number of libraries in the region. There are plenty to choose from and we love visiting each one.

One of the places we regularly work from are branches of the “Happy” District of Columbia Public Library.

Recently, the DCPL staff recorded a music video that was first shown during the library’s staff day last month and was just made available on YouTube.

What song did they choose?

The number one hit by Pharrell Williams, Happy!

We love it! Take a look below.
