What do you geek?
The word "geek," long associated with pocket protectors and coke-bottled glasses, has become fashionable- famous geeks such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg are cultural icons. Asking "what do you geek?" is a way to illustrate the fact that everyone is passionate about something- everyone "geeks something"- and their library supports them all. Beginning September, the Alvin Sherman Library is launching a public awareness campaign encouraging you to talk about what you "geek". We hope it engages and inspires you to spread the word about the value of libraries and librarians.
