Oloch Wooly Mammoth bookcartWhoa – you have to look at these. Highsmith and the Unshelved library comic strip recently announced the winners of their “Pimp My Bookcart” contest. The four top entries were so much fun that there was a tie for third place.

While the first prize winner, a mock-UPS truck bookcart built by Timberland High School in Wentzville, MO, is impressive – and looks as if it’ll be great for setting out displays – my favorite is the second prize winner. It’s this Woolly Mammoth cart named “Oloch” from the Othmer Library of Chemical History in Philadelphia. Wouldn’t the kids in any library love to see this furry beast rolling around the room?
