Geek Week

Posted: Updated:

What does it mean to be a geek?

A Minot High School librarian had the idea to dedicate this past school week to them.

He thought it would showcase individuals who are driven by intelligence and motivated by detail to inspire others.

The school hopes to inspire young people to get involved with healthy hobbies and passions.

Minot High's library hosted sessions teaching students about guitar playing, good books, and even airplanes.

(John Scheeler, Library Media Specialist) "Everybody has something that they are passionate about, that they care about. And I thought, well if you can get kids to connect with their passion, what they care about, with what we do in the library, this will be a great for both of us."
