Geek The Library: My Idea Of Heaven

If you were to feel my heartbeat right now, you would be amazed. The moment I read the words “geek” and “library” in one phrase, I knew that I would find something to make me high. Just so you have the context – one of my dreams is to become a librarian. Yes, it is not every day that you find someone who would admit to that, but since I left university, I have always seen myself practicing this profession one day. So when I heard about the Geek The Library movement, I was ecstatic.

What’s Geek The Library all about?

It’s a movement that was made possible by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The idea is very simple and yet brilliant at the same time: focus on what individuals are passionate about AND then highlight how libraries can support these passions.

We all know how people tend to look down on libraries. They’re boring places. They’re not cool. But if you think about it, libraries are the physical manifestations of cool things such as the Internet!

In spite of my natural tendencies to “not like” Bill Gates, I cannot help but admire him for pushing this initiative. With this kind of movement, people just might pay more attention to libraries and see their significance. Oh, and I love how they turn “geek” into a verb: Geek the library! What do you geek?

Yeah, tell me, what do you geek? I geek the library!
