Join our Wikipedia Takes Brooklyn scavenger hunt and photo contest, aimed
at illustrating Wikipedia articles covering the wondrous sights of the
County of Kings!
Location: Brooklyn Public Library, central branch at Grand Army Plaza
Time: Saturday September 7, starting 10am (photo hunt starting 12 noon)
Please RSVP here:
We'll introduce things starting at 10am, and then send you off at 12 noon,
on itineraries stretching in eccentric lines from the Brooklyn Public
Library throughout Prospect Heights, and the borough beyond.
The afternoon will be spent on your Brooklyn photo wiki-odyssey, and there
will also be Wikipedia discussion and learning sessions (including open
office hours and one-on-one trainings) back at the library if you return
Be back at the library by 5pm, and we'll spend the last hour of the day
helping you upload your photos to Wikipedia.
The event is being held as part of "Wiki Weekend" at the BPL, and there
will be a taste of the overlapping Wikiotics.org "Families Learning
Bilingually" session for part of our afternoon Saturday, and then for all
of Sunday September 8 (we will have opportunities for informal Wikipedia
sessions on Sunday as well).
No special wiki knowledge is required at all, just a camera and a love of
