Happy Geek Pride Day!

Betcha didn't know May 25th is a "holiday", did ya? It's Geek Pride Day! (Find out more about it via PC World magazine online, or view the Wikipedia entry.) We geeks and nerds glory in the positive definitions provided by the online Merriam Webster Dictionary--We're intellectual folks--enthusiasts or experts--especially in a technological field or activity.

If you're a self-proclaimed geek and want to celebrate, what better way to do it than by reading a book geared just towards you! Here's a selection of great titles you can check out at The Urbana Free Library to feed your inner techy.
