Geek the Library is a community awareness campaign designed to highlight the vital role of public libraries and educate the public about the critical funding issues many libraries face.
The Geek the Library campaign grabs people’s attention and serves as a reminder about the immense value public libraries have for individuals and for communities. The awareness campaign introduces the word ‘geek’ as a verb and illustrates the fact that everyone is passionate about something—everyone ‘geeks’ something—and that the public library supports it all.
As people see Geek the Library campaign elements around the community their curiosity increases and the campaign provides an effective platform to educate and engage people about the critical nature of public library funding, as well as feeding a growing awareness that every individual, inevitably, plays a role.
