Pimp My Bookcart 2009

No one is more surprised than we to find out what a big piece of library culture we created back in 2006. It was just a funny idea Gene had, a parody of MTV's "Pimp My Ride". But our readers ran with it and created some of the most amazing pieces of art. Every year we think it's finally run it's course, and every year the submissions are a new and wonderful kind of awesome.

So we're happily surprised to find ourselves announcing Unshelved's Pimp My Bookcart 2009, again generously sponsored by Smith System, makers of fine book carts.

We know, we know - the name can be a little contentious in some communities. But we don't care what you call it. Just whip up a program that lets kids and/or teenagers apply their creative skills, and we'll show off the results to the world.

Do us a favor - pass it on. Not everyone reads our blog, and we want to make sure every school, library, and bookstore in the country, nay, the world has a chance to participate. Let's make this year's contest the biggest and best ever!
