Disney songwriter makes New York Public Library his office

Glenn Slater, lyricist behind Disney's new animated film "Tangled," writes his songs while camped out at the New York Public Library's branch for the Performing Arts on NYC's Upper West Side.  With his MacBook, thesaurus, rhyming dictionary and notes in hand, Slater writes those verses that eventually become part of hit soundtracks from films and Broadway musicals such as "The Little Mermaid," "Sister Act" and "Leap of Faith."

The best part?  Slater saves himself thousands of dollars in rent each month by doing his work at the public library rather than renting out office space.  What great things can you achieve at your library?
