"These Brooklyn librarians have gone from shelving books to rocking out in a band.
The six librarians have formed a roving band called Lost in the Stacks - a jazz and blues band that plays at book festivals and branches all over the city.
The group is a far cry from the stern stereotypes of librarians.
“This gives the people another image of librarians,” said the band’s founding member, Jack McCleland, 65, the head librarian at the main branch at Grand Army Plaza.
“There’s this stereotype of librarians being this older woman with her hair in a bun shushing everyone. We’re not like that. We have a lot of very hip and very cool people.”
