WLL in Rennes, France[edit]

I just discovered TWL with the new newsletter and I love it, I am thinking about some port to the French-language Wikipedia. For now the Wikipedians of Rennes, Brittany, France organize a small editathon on 24 November in the central library; could the following item be added to a WLL section? I don’t know if the newsletter will be issued before the date, but it’s not very important, we already contacted potentially interested people; it’s more for informational purposes.

Rennes, France, Sunday, 24 November. The Wikipedians of Rennes, Brittany (the so-called NCO) were invited by the central library of Rennes Les Champs Libres for a first small editathon on 24 November for Wikipedia and Wikisource activities, given it is the 10th anniversary of Wikisource and given the library concomitantly opened a new digital library centered on local heritage.

August 2014[edit]


The library where I use NewsBank had to drop it because they didn't have the budget. I don't know when I will lose access there, but I have contributed so much great information to Wikipedia that I got from there. I could drive farther maybe once a month to another library where that won't be a problem, though ironically there are fewer newspapers available.

This isn't so much a suggestion for Books and Bytes, but it would be covered there if you did it. Could you work on getting access to NewsBank?
