Daniel Handler And Maira Kalman Sing Ode To Libraries (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We love Daniel Handler. We love Maira Kalman. So, needless to say, when they teamed up for their book "Why We Broke Up" (which came out last December), we were ridiculously excited.

They recently received the Printz Honor for the book at the ALA's Annual Convention in June. While accepting this award, they performed this ode to libraries.

The refrain is "Without libraries, we'd be dumb." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

This version was filmed before the convention.
