WESTPORT, Conn. — The Westport Library is launching an awareness campaign to showcase the wide range of programs and services the library offers individuals and the community.
Called “Geek the Library,” the campaign aims to generate conversations about the library through the use of professional photographs of individuals showing what they “geek.” The word “geek” is used as a verb to illustrate that everyone is passionate about something — everyone “geeks” something — and the library can help them explore and develop their interests.
There will be a free event to launch the campaign from 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday in the library’s Great Hall on the main level. Opening remarks will be followed by refreshments and a viewing of large banners featuring some prominent Westporters showing what they geek. Attendees will be invited to write on the “Geek Wall” and will be offered a T-shirt.
Professional photographer Pam Einarsen will be taking photographs of people who would like to pose with what they geek (those who would like their picture taken should wear a solid black top and bring what they geek). Participants will be offered free digital and print copies of their photographs.
The next photo session is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the Great Hall.
