Even though I live in NJ now, I still follow the list and could get in touch with a Boston Public Library employee if you want. He does reference at Dudley and I think still works Sundays at the main branch at Copley. I used to work at the West Roxbury branch and they have Wifi and a room you can reserve.

(Pardon me for being late to this conversation.)

Has anyone asked at the Somerville Public Library? One of my friends is in charge of the local history collection (among other duties) at the Central Branch and might be interested in this event. I'm in one of the book groups and could potentially ask that librarian, too. Let me know if you'd like me to inquire (at least on the "Hey, can I put Anne in touch with you about this cool Wikipedia event?" level). I also know someone at the Winthrop Public Library and maybe others, too. (I know more specialized/corporate/nontraditional/academic librarians than public or school librarians.)
