Friday, July 13th is Embrace Your Geekness day. It's a great day to proudly proclaim you are a geek. Remember, the definition of a geek can be "a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest." Everyone has a little bit of geek in them. What are you totally interested in? Is it comic books? Technology? Sports? A particular TV show? Show your Geekness by visiting the library dressed like a geek and get entered into a special drawing.
