Last week Dodge City Public Library had their kick off for our “Geek the Library” campaign. We had approximately 200 people show up for free hotdogs, Pepsi, balloons, music and a good time. We also had two geek boards, one for children and one for adults. We started off outside on the front lawn of the library. When the weather got threatening we moved inside – about half way through. We were hoping we could say that we brought rain, but didn’t get much of that. We basically just had threatening weather. We may be the only Geek the Library kick off that included a fight followed with a shoot out. After all this is Dodge City. Actually the Boot Hill gunfighters showed put and did a brief entertainment. In case you’re interested they Geek cowboys and guns.
If you would like to see some photos, go to our webpage and look at the link below the calendar of events. The web address is www.dcpl.info.
If you are doing this campaign I hope you are having as much fun with it as we are. Our next outing is the Business Appreciation Fair and Luncheon. This is sponsored by the Development Corporation and the Chamber of Commerce and is a chance to say thanks to businesses for their support. We will have two tables of information – one general library and one Geek the Library. This is happening this Wednesday. We do have some other events as well this summer but will let you know about them later.
