Geek the Library posters

Our 2013-2014 Geek the Library posters have been been completed! You can see what Westland community members big and small "geek" by visiting our flickr page or stopping by the library. A special thanks goes to all of the kind people who donated their time (and faces) for this special project, including our very own WLND for taking such outstanding pictures. Support our campaign by: putting what you geek on our library Geek Tree; wearing a Geek button, sticker, or t-shirt around town; telling everyone you know about everything we do well; and more. Whatever you geek, the library supports you!
