OCLC to expand Geek the Library campaign to more libraries with increased support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Geek the Library, OCLC's community awareness campaign designed to highlight the value of public libraries, has received $1,924,883 from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to extend participation in the program to 1,000 additional libraries through June 2015. The funding allows increased emphasis on library staff planning and implementation of the program, and will help staff build on the knowledge and skills they need to be effective advocates for libraries in their communities
