It’s been fun to watch September Project events evolve over the past 5 years, and fascinating to watch technology improve and expand along with them. Way back in 2004, we had a map that marked each participating library with a pin. The map was based on code, sweat, and tears by our then Technology Director John Klockner, and each pin was painstakingly placed using layers of x and y coordinates as each event was posted to our listserv.
Fast forward 5 years, and through the magic of google maps, we’re able (we = david and me, non-coders) to create and embed a map for the September Project as if we had some kind of special powers 🙂
So now you can add to the magic! If you don’t see your event on the map, please drop us a line or post to the listserv. we’re excited to see your library marked with a pin!
