Band performs at Vermont libraries

BRADFORD, Vt. A Vermont trio is lending its voice to help out those places that lend out books.

David Rosane and the Zookeepers are in the middle of their two-month library benefit tour.

The group is scheduled to perform at 13 rural libraries this Summer.

All donations from the concerts go to support literacy programs, science events for kids, building repair and eco-friendly materials for the hosting library.

Vermont has the highest number of libraries per capita in the entire country.

"This is where democracy happens. Often itself, the building is the hub of the community. It's the central part of the community and we get a kick out of doing it, because when we were kids, people were always telling us don't make any noise in a library and here we get to show up as a rock band and break windows...no sorry, that was a joke," Rosane said.

He said so far, they have raised an average of $500 per show.

The trio is also promoting its brand new album, "BOOK of ZOO."
