Library anniversary celebrations wiki

With so many libraries having important anniversaries, someone has created an anniversary Wiki to get and share ideas!

While it is not clear who drew up this wiki, information is plainly sourced and looks useful.

The wiki can be found at:
http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Library_anniversary_celebrations and is currently divided into these areas:

1 PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS
1.1 Press Releases
1.2 Publications
1.3 Materials to Obtain, Adopt, or Create
1.4 Resources
2 AGENDAS, SPEAKERS
2.1 Ideas for an agenda promoting GovDocs
2.2 Speakers
3 DEPOSITORY LIBRARY EXCELLENT EVENTS

While some of this material can be dug out of the govdoc-l archives, isn’t it better to have it all in one place? Whether or not you’re celebrating the big 1-0-0, check out this site. It could give you event ideas for non-anniversary years.

My thanks to whomever was responsible for this great start. I say start, because like most wikis, it is freely editable. So anniversary libraries, start your engines and make this site even better for those of us who will be celebrating big anniversaries
