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.
I hope you are having as much fun earning badges for Connect Your Summer as I am. I've earned some by reading really good books, a couple more for doing some fun things here at the library, and few by coming up with some creative ideas all by myself. I'm sharing my badges so you can see all the things I've done. I love reading all the things that you have done to earn badges too. Keep up the great work!
I'm trying to decide what badge I should earn next, and I need your help. Find the poll and vote for what badge I should earn. If you do, you can claim Geek Out Badge. Thanks for your help. Bear Hugs,
