rgz Shout Out: Jet City Bombers, Roller Derby

Jennifer Buchanan / The Herald

Thanks to Herald Net for this write up on roller derby! That's our own Auburn Public Librarian, Rachel McDonald, in blue on the left. Let's just say, she's not your mother's librarian! Go, Rachel!

Her team, The Jet City Bombers, is going to regionals in October in Sacramento.

Any other roller derby rgz out there?

“This is an amazing time to be playing roller derby,” said Kate Mossman of Everett, aka missu sunshine, a 37-year-old librarian at the Everett Public Library. “It's really taking off.”
