S.F. City Librarian, Super Bowl Bet Loser, Reads ‘The Raven’ While Wearing Ravens Jersey

“Sporting a Ravens’ jersey and siting in a rocking chair at the San Francisco Public Library, city librarian Luis Herrera makes good on a bet he made with Pratt Library CEO Carla Hayden to read Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven if the Niners lost the Super Bowl. And they did. And how. And so Herrera made the above video as part of the bet.”

Excellent job, all around!

Pratt Library vs. San Francisco Public Library: Two Great Libraries, One Great Super Bowl Bet

“The Enoch Pratt Free Library has Purple Fever. As the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers get ready to battle it out on the grid iron this Sunday at Super Bowl XLVII, the Pratt Library is joining Ravens Nation as it dares the San Francisco Public Library into a Super Bowl-Library bet. “It’s going to be a cross country battle of the libraries,” said Carla Hayden, Chief Executive Officer of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Here’s the bet:

If the Ravens win on Sunday, San Francisco Public Library City Librarian Luis Herrera will have to recite Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” in the atrium of the SFPL Main Library wearing a Ravens jersey. If the 49ers win, Pratt Library CEO Carla Hayden will have to recite George Sterling’s “The Cool, Grey City of Love” in the Central Library Main Hall wearing a 49ers jersey.”
