‘Get Your Geek On”
Coastal Branch Library
Oct 13th –Dec 31, 2014
It’s Time to Get Your Geek On!
Coastal Branch Library is taking part in “Geek the Library” campaign to raise awareness about the importance of library funding support. Coastal library community may soon add a new verb to their vocabulary- ‘geek.’
Geek the Library is a community based public awareness campaign. The campaign highlights what people are passionate about and how libraries can support them, in an effort to heighten awareness about the critical funding issues public libraries face. Geek the Library features local educational material that introduces ‘geek’ as a verb, and encourages the public to talk about what they ‘geek’ – whether it’s engineering, superheroes or art. The public awareness campaign illustrates the fact that everyone is passionate about something--- everyone ‘geeks’ something- and that the library supports them all.
The campaign Web site, www.geekthelibrary.org, provides information about how people can get active and support their local library. Prizes will be offered to the first few people who get their picture on a poster and share what they ‘geek.’
Personal pictures for the campaign will be taken in the library starting Oct 13th in celebration of Teen Read Week. ‘Geek the Library’ Posters will be on display in the library until the end of the year.
Please call 850-267-2809 for more information.
