Now nerds and bookworms everywhere can be like Xzibit of MTV's "Pimp My Ride" fame, only this time rather than customizing rides, kids can trick out library carts instead. Now that's badass!
RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Bookworms, rejoice. You too can have a cool MTV ride - for your books. As a fresh way to reach young people, the local library has offered teens a chance to give a little flash to the carts that move books around. It's called the "Pimp My Cart" program. Brittney Putzer, 13, who joined a dozen teens and preteens during the weekend event, said working on the old carts at the Racine Public Library was better than "sitting at home doing nothing."
