You can show your support for Sandusky District Library, and your passion for Sandusky Schools, by joining the “I Geek the Library” campaign that kicks off during Sandusky High School Homecoming.

It’s all part of a public awareness campaign that focuses on the role of libraries in the community and their critical funding issues, according to Gail Nartker, Sandusky District Library director.

The Sandusky library and Sandusky Community Schools have teamed up for the geek campaign by tying it together with homecoming.

Geek the Library introduces “geek” as a verb, and encourages the public to talk about what they “geek” or are passionate about - sports, movies, gardening, fishing, etc. The public awareness campaign illustrates that everyone is passionate about something - everyone “geeks” something - and the library supports them all, Nartker explained.

Sandusky High School students have adopted the “Geek the Library” theme for their homecoming events, the week of Sept. 12-16, including “geek” theme dress-up days for spirit week, “geek” theme floats for the parade on Sept. 16, “I geek redskins’ buttons, and an “I geek redskins” tshirt sale, with proceeds supporting the student council and the high school library.

The t-shirts are on sale now through homecoming week. The price is $10 for sizes small through extra-large, and a dollar more for bigger sizes. Purchases are through the high school principal’s office - 810-648-3401.

“We really look forward to collaborating with Sandusky Community Schools to get people ‘geeked’ about libraries and what they mean to our community,” said Nartker.

“We’re really excited to...join them on their campaign,” said Teresa Stringer, student council and homecoming advisor. “It’s a way to support the community...that’s what the school is, community.”

The library is also planning a “Geek Force” in October.
