Geek the Library Launch Event

January 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Johnson City Public Library will hold a press conference Friday, January 17 at 11:00 a.m. in the Jones Meeting Room of the library to launch its Geek the Library campaign. Geek the Library will feature educational material that introduces ‘geek’ as a verb, and encourages the public to talk about what they ‘geek’- whether it’s engineering, superheroes, art or other subjects. The public awareness campaign illustrates the fact that everyone is passionate about something (i.e., everyone ‘geeks’ something) and that the public library has books and other materials about all of those different interests.

This campaign is part of a larger statewide initiative. Secretary of State Tre Hargett said the campaign “is designed to provoke conversation about the vital role that public libraries and librarians play in our lives. No matter what your interests are, you can learn more about them at your local library.”
