For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on a project with the fabulous Chelsea District Library.* If you follow me on twitter or stalk me on Facebook, you might have seen the photo I posted last week:
Once you’ve gotten over the shock of seeing me in a photograph — !!!!! — you might notice the text on the photo. The Chelsea Library is participating in the Geek the Library campaign, and they’ve asked me to shoot a whole bunchity-bunch of portraits of local residents who have elected to share what they geek. (I didn’t take the above photo, but it was taken by my camera. Anna helped.) The photos will be displayed online and elsewhere to encourage all y’all to show your support of the library.
I’m posting this photo now because while a few of the photos have been revealed, the official launch of the campaign is PRETTY MUCH RIGHT NOW. By which I mean from noon through 2pm on Monday, June 4, 2012. You can drop by the library to see what it’s all about, to check out some of the photos we’ve done so far, to pick up some Geek stuff — What do you kids call it today? Swag? — and even to sign up to have your photo taken so you can be a part of the Geek campaign. (We’ll be having regular photo sessions at the library.) Are you going to show up? OF COURSE YOU ARE. Don’t be silly. All the cool kids are going to be there.
*(Well, to me it’s still the McKune Library, but you might not understand that if you’re not a longtime Chelsea resident. Longtimers REPRESENT! Yes, we can stop by the old high school on the way to the Methodist Home. If you’re lucky we’ll even have dinner at Schumm’s.)
