Well, it's almost time for another Nerd Nite, but this month the library has the opportunity to participate in double Nerd Nite nerdy awesomeness!
First, on Monday, is the regularaly scheduled Nerd Nite East Bay at the New Parkway beginning at 8pm (doors at 7pm). OPL staff will be there, as usual, making library cards, replacing lost cards, regaling you with fine facts about all the things you can do and find at the library, and distributing our newest Nerd Nite Reading List. The October talks will cover Supercomputers, Lake Merritt, and DNA Sequencing. Fascinating stuff, right?? Check out the Reading List below, or hit our Nerd Nite Pinterest Board to see the covers and click straight through the the catalog.
That's not all! On Wednesday, we'll also be at Nerd Nite at Sea on the USS Hornet in Alameda! At this extra-special Nerd Nite, which is part of the Bay Area Science Festival, about 1000 people will be in attendance. The event is already sold out, but if you have your ticket and plan to be there, keep an eye out for your friendly local library staff person! Weather permitting, you might even catch a glimpse of our super brand new, super fun, extremely mobile, new outreach bicycle trailer! And hey - if you can think of somewhere else we shoud be biking this, do let us know!
