Help getting in touch with someone from BPL would be great. It's a
beautiful place and would probably be fun to hang out. Do you know if
they'd let us have snacks? The CPL is also a nice option, I think, if
more interested parties are north of the river.
Regardless of actual official meeting space, we can all get together,
claim a few tables, and edit our hearts out.
Saturday, July 14: 10am-1pm, or 11am-2pm. (Late enough it's not
horrible to get there, early enough we'll finish and still have time
for other things--like lunch.)
Preferences on hours or location?

I like this idea! But I have not recently talked with
any libraries about
an editathon. We discussed a Wiki Loves Libraries event this September,
but GorillaWarfare is coordinating that one. Maybe she's recently spoken
with local libraries?
I'd usually offer to help, but I'm especially busy getting ready Wikimania.
Best of luck with the event, Molly!

Molly de B. mentioned to me that some Boston and Cambridge area folks
who can't make it to Wikimania want to hold an editathon here in
Boston or Cambridge. Perhaps one afternoon, for 3-4 hours, ideally in
a local library.
Molly's offering to organize the event :-) Eric, have you talked
with any libraries recently about holding such an event? I could
write to Michael Colford at the BPL. Molly, what days would work for
you? Let's make our request as clear as possible before pinging them
for space and perhaps librarian-attention.
I hope many of you are preparing for the NY editathon next week and
for Wikimania itself :-)
