The time honored librarian's call for silence just wasn't cutting it in the Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library on Thursday afternoon.

The operative phrase was: 'Quiet on the Set.'

While the library generally discourages talking, no one was looking to muffle Buccaneers Executive Vice Presidents Ed Glazer or Joel Glazer on Thursday. Along with several young volunteers, the Glazers gathered at a local library for the filming of a public service announcement.

Flanked by Dejanique, Tyrone and Bart, young actors brought in by the library staff, Ed and Joel alternated shooting PSA's for the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System, designed to encourage parents to bring their children to the library over the summer.

The Glazer Family Foundation and Friends of the Library have combined to create the Summer Reading Program designed to promote literacy and expose kids to the joy of reading. The specifics of the program will be unveiled on May 15 at the Egypt Lake Partnership Library and will be highlighted throughout the summer by the PSAs produced on Thursday.

Thursday's shoot was produced and directed by Buccaneers Director of Game Day/Video Production Chris Kartzmark and captured by Game Day/Video Production Coordinator Garland Conger. The Foundation staff, headed by Director Roni Costello, was also on hand to assist with the coordination of the shoot, and the team mascot played a part in the PSA then stuck around to entertain young library patrons.

The PSA's will air on WTOG, UPN Channel 44.
