check it out trio

Happy National Library Week! (April 12-18). We so appreciate our library customers, and we just want to remind you this week to come to the library – whether it’s the bookmobile, the digital branch or the building – and check out all the awesome collections and services available to you. As library supporters, you’re among good company. Taylor Swift is also a vocal supporter of libraries and literacy. Here is an homage to her and to libraries nationwide that work to improve the lives of its community members.

Are you “Swift” enough to spot all the Taylor Swift references in this video?

Good luck.

1) Here are 4 very SWIFT-Y books alongside 1 very FEARLESS one. What a lovely shade of RED lipstick…

2) Just a guy reading THE LORAX with a RED bowtie…

3) Hey Guy, you can STAY, STAY, STAY with your RED pencil drumsticks…

4) Travel through the stacks with those RED endcaps and their strange titles: COUNTRY-POP MUSIC, 15-22 MUSIC, TAY-SWI BIOGRAPHY. Grab a SWIFT book or some TAYLOR SWIFT LULLABYES while you’re at it…

5) 2 for the price of 1: a TAYLOR mag cover named InSTYLE…

6) Whew… a lot going on here folks: Hitch 22, the JONAS BROTHERS LIVE, THE GIVER audiobook, a book named RED, and Finger Lickin’ 15. (And those RED shoes though!)

7) Please! Everyone… just STOP TEASING TAYLOR…

8) Normal Hand #1: CSI SEASON 9 and VALENTINE’S DAY. Normal Hand #2: TAYLOR SWIFT book and THE GIVER. Weird Hand #3: SPEAK NOW LIVE and the ONE CHANCE SOUNDTRACK…

9) Wait are those shirts… RED? (Fun Fact: You can’t tell from here but every one of those items has a Tay nod)

10) That RED sign says “ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS STAY SAVE”…

11) Had to get in JOHN MAYER’S BATTLE STUDIES and a NEW YORK book on the FEAR-LESS aisle…

12) Yep. All T’s Song Titles: TIM MCGRAW, OUT OF THE WOODS, WHITE HORSE, STORY OF US, BAD BLOOD (with Bonus Katy Perry dig), BLANK SPACE, LOVE STORY, and WE R NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER…

13) This is a gimme…

14) THE LORAX with a double dose of FEARLESS…

15) Tay-Tay Live!

16) There she is again…

17) And again! (She’s gonna be stopping by a lot from here on out) And if you’re quick you can catch a copy of YOUR WILDEST DREAMS…

18) This coin was minted in the year 1989…

19) T’s Birthday: TWELVE 13. T’s Birthplace/Childhood home: READING, PENNSYLVANIA, CHRISTMAS TREE FARM. T’s Birth year (Spelled phonetically of course) 19, 80, 9…

20) We’re going to start seeing a lot of RED… starting with this pocket square…


21) And this guy’s RED shirt

22) One for the true Swifties. “Your Cat” with a copy of GREY’S ANATOMY and LAW AND ORDER SVU. And another READ poster sighting…

23) There’s Taylor checking out those RED nails, headband, and hoodie. Big Props if you put together that she’s reading DEAR JOHN and he’s listening to SPEAK NOW (the album that features the song DEAR JOHN!)

24) Haha: BAKE IT OFF! with STYLE, THE SWIFT DIET, and FEARLESS BAKING. Taylor’s there in the back and those bakers are definitely rocking RED (and a cake pan guitar) If you look closely you’ll see TAYLOR SWIFT (debut album) in the upper left corner…

25) The computer screen down on the left has TAYLOR SWIFT: HER LIFE available to stream. Taylor’s there in the Make-It Lab and of course the Makers are all RED…

26) Those Sue Grafton books spell out CHECKITOUT but that’s not the best part – Look at the author’s names on the row of books above…

27) Kleenaxs to handle TEARDROPS ON YOUR GUITAR… and a T-Shirt that just screams “WELCOME TO NEW YORK”…

28) A bonus double for ya – Taylor’s song on the HUNGER GAMES SOUNDTRACK is named SAFE AND SOUND…

29) Of course this RED sign says I WISH YOU WOULD…

30) A few new ones here: BAD BLOOD, a RED endcap that reads “NEV-OUT STYLE” and a nice double dose of 1989…

31) The items Todd has picked out are a warning: I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE…

32) ELAINE is the NEW GIRL and she’s got the DVD to prove it (Wasn’t Taylor in that season… what was her character’s name?) Also those RED shirts have 1989 on the back…

33) That fella’s got some cool RED shades… and the first look at the #checkitout shirts. Taylor’s there in the back to cheer him on…

34) It can’t be denied: I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT…

35) A classic work of art… BLANK SPACE by artist T.SWIFT (Also listed is that famous birth year and the year Blank Space was released)…

36) This Resume’s loaded with song references and Taylor Trivia… Then of course Taylor’s there on the wall… and is that her holding the resume??

37) Worth repeating… I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT

38) Taylor in banner form… and the whole flashmob is a sea of… you guessed it: RED

Anything we missed?
