Geek the Library -- Literally

Libraries across the country are participating in a nationwide campaign called "Geek the Library" which seeks to spread awareness about the vital role libraries play in their communities and how they are funded. Throughout the campaign, library patrons, community leaders, and politicians are all lining up in droves to have their pictures taken to share what they "geek" --i.e. what they are passionate about and have a heightened interest in.

At Coffee County Lannom Library in Tullahoma, Tennessee, a masked library supporter, TK-7693, simultaneously wished to help spread library awareness and lay to rest the rumors that all stormtroopers are one-dimensional-brainless-sith-lord-followers-who-can't-shoot-straight.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present, "The Stormtrooper Geeks!"
