This Saturday: Flash-Mob Cataloging Party

Book geeks! We need you! Come, take up arms cuecats and help!

We’re having a “flash-mob” cataloging party November 15th, Saturday, in Beverly, MA (just north of Boston). We’ll descend on St. John’s Episcopal Church, catalog their 1,200-odd books, eat some pizza, talk some talk and leave them with a gleaming new LibraryThing catalog. Books, bibliophiles, conversation, barcode scanners, pizza! (Not to mention Mike, Sonya, Tim, and probably Abby.)

Details: Join us..
* The day: Saturday, November 15th.
* The time: TBD, probably starting at 10:00 or 11:00, but come whenever.
* The place: St. John’s Episcopal Church in Beverly Farms, MA (Google map)

See the LibraryThing Local page.

There’s a discussion on the Bostonians group. I’m sure we can figure out how to get even car-less people there. The commuter rail gets you very close to the church.

Come on: Pizza. Laptops. CueCats. Take pictures. Leave after a day’s work with a LibraryThing catalog in place. Do good. Have fun.

Just email Sonya @ for details/to RSVP.
