Hi New York Wikipedians,

GLAM/Metropolitan New York Library Council is having a photo-contest for
photographs of New York Public Library Branch Libraries, Brooklyn Public
Library Branch Libraries, and Queens Library Branch Libraries.

You are welcome to join in promoting the contest, and we can add the
Wikimedia NYC name to it if you like. See the entry on our GLAM page for
full 
details.<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/Metropolitan_New_York_Library_Council>

Also, if you would like to get more involved and stay updates with METRO's
Wikipedia organizing activities with GLAMs please add yourself to this
group/ listserv, which I just created
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/glamwikiny

I'm also revamping the Wikipedia:GLAM/US/New York
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/US/New_York>page, and if
anyone would like to help me update it, please do!

I hope to talk to Wikimedia NYC about my ideas for creating platforms for
GLAMs to connect with each other, as well as the relationship between this
group and Wikimedia NYC at your next meeting on October 5, 2013, which I
will attend.

I also want to let everyone know that Richard K and I met with Frank
Collerius at the Jefferson Market Library this Tuesday and an Edit-a-Thon
there on November 2nd from 10am-5pm on Greenwich Village History is in the
works. Frank was very excited to host and offered to select some rare books
their library has on Greenwich Village, as well as (potentially) some
photographs of the library from their archives for us to use at the
Edit-a-Thon. Will talk more about this event at your next meeting I'm sure.

Cheers,

Dorothy Howard
