The staff at Sachem Public Library wished patrons a very happy holiday in a very unique way this year. They made their own version of Carpool Karaoke, the hit segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden. (They even invited Corden on a Facebook post to come to Long Island any time to sing with them.)


The video begins with library staff chatting and warming up for their bit and then they break out in their version of Jingle Bells cutting between clips of various staff members singing at the wheel of the van.


The video has gotten almost 7,000 views since last week and hundreds of likes and shares.
