Britannia Shuffle

Date: Friday, July 20

Venue: British Lending Library (1st floor Circulation sorting range)

Participation: Individual event


Event Description: Those who have used print library books will definitely have the edge in this one. This isn't your Grandfather's Dewey Decimal System either. Your challenge, if you are Olympian enough to accept it, is to put books in call number order. The clock will be ticking...Bound to be a pressure-cooker event for both participants and observers.

To Register: Send your name and the name of this event to the IOOC Coordinator before 10 a.m. of the day of this event. Walk-ons also welcome.
