Geek Out @ Your Library

 

Thursday, May 28th, 2:00 - 3:00pm EST

 

Competency: Customer Service

Sub-Category: Designs, implements and sponsors library programs that provide opportunities for information, entertainment and lifelong learning

 

Wizards, Time Lords, dragons and angels....just some of the characters your patrons love. Stepping into the “geek” world can be overwhelming, and there just isn't enough time to learn about all the various fandoms. But this is where your patrons, especially youth are at.

 

Learn how to engage your patrons, and the shift from a consumer to a creator culture in the geek community. And find some new favorite communities along the way.

 

Participants will learn about:

  • The current top trends in the geek community
  • Where to find out about what is popular
  • Programming ideas for the geek culture
