Geek the Library is a US-based community awareness campaign designed to highlight the vital role of public libraries and raise awareness about the critical funding issues they face.
The Geek the Library campaign hopes to inspire a conversation about our incredible public libraries and their urgent need for increased support.
The campaign introduces the word ‘geek’ as a verb and draws attention to the fact every individual is passionate about something and anyone can learn more about what they geek—what they are passionate about—at the public library.
The public library’s role in building strong communities is more important than ever—especially in a tough economy. But as library usage increases, and the pressure to expand services intensifies, many libraries simply don’t have the necessary funding to support the new demand. At the same time, most are experiencing flat or decreasing budgets.
The Geek the Library campaign encourages you to tell your friends what you geek and how the public library supports you and your community, and to spread the word that everyone in your community benefits from the services your local public library provides.
