Tickets for the Feb. 10 Farmington Community Library I Geek Oscar Shorts Red Carpet Event at the Farmington Civic Theater go on sale today, at the Main Library and Farmington branch.
The event officially kicks off a year-long initiative designed to raise awareness about the library and what it brings to the community. The word "geek" is used as a verb, meaning:
- To love, to enjoy, to celebrate, to have an intense passion for.
- To express interest in.
- To possess a large amount of knowledge in.
- To promote.
Community members are encouraged to visit igeekfcl.wordpress.com and submit a statement about what they "geek", and a number of other events are planned during the year.
There are only 275 tickets available for the Red Carpet event, at $15 a person and $25 a couple. Everyone is encouraged to dress for the occasion; the evening starts at 6:30 p.m. at Mike Greer Photography, where hors d'oeuvres will be served, followed by a showing of the Oscar-nominated short films at 7:30 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will beneft the Friends of the Library, which provides funds for books, technology, programs and other library needs.
