Listen to NPR to hear Lisa Miser in Proctor and Paula Baker in Rutland talk about Geek the Library. Both Vermont librarians were quoted in a story by VPR reporter Lindsey Keck. The national campaign uses individual faces with the phrase I geek “a subject” at the library.
Check out the Rutland Free Library website to see local faces and what they geek– myth, hula hoops, and railroads. The Library is also using their Facebook site to stoke interest in the new campaign and encourage high school students to get involved.
Geek the Library is a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation effort. Read more about the campaign at Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning.
