* Keep Austin Weird
"Keep Austin Weird" is more a state of mind than a statement. The slogan is the brainchild of one of our own, Red Wassenich, and his wife, Karen Pavelka. Since it's inception in 2000, Austin folks have been bandying about the phrase freely and loosely. And, according to Wikipedia, other communities have jumped on the bandwagon. Join Red and Julie Todaro, Dean of Library Services, Austin Community College,during the Welcome session.
