If there's one thing this librarian loves, it's a good nerd, so imagine my excitement when I learned there was an opportunity to partner with Nerd Nite East Bay. A dream come true! A whole night, once a month, for nerds that we, the Oakland Public Library, can be part of? Count me in!
So, you may be wondering what Nerd Nite is exactly. It is an event that takes place on the last Monday of each month at the New Parkway and includes three talks from three speakers on three diverse topics, each one, of course, interesting and engaging. Last month I attended as an audience member and loved it. This month, I'll attend as an interested audience member and in official librarian capacity repping OPL.
Monday, August 26th, doors 7:00pm, start 8:00pm at the New Parkway
