"Greenwich Village In The 60s" will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013, at the Jefferson Market Library (425 Avenue of the Americas at 10th Street, New York, NY 10011-8454 (212) 243-4334), as part of this year's Wikipedia Loves Libraries global campaign. The event is hosted by Jefferson Market Library, Wikimedia NYC and METRO.

This Edit-a-thon will focus on expanding Wikipedia articles about Greenwich Village History and the public art, community gardens, and library branches in the area. Editors will have the opportunity to utilize rare books and items from the Greenwich Village Collection, which holds over 150+ books on the history of New York City.

This event includes an introduction to Wikipedia images and two duplicate trainings on using Wikipedia held in the morning and afternoon. No special Wiki knowledge is required to participate, just a love of Greenwich Village!

Wikipedians will be on hand to provide basic training on how to edit articles, provide more advanced training/assistance for the experienced, and to answer any other questions about Wikipedia and the organizational aspects of Wikipedia editing which go on in classrooms libraries, archives, and museums all over the world.
