Details

In February 2016 we started WikiSoCal editathons and meetups here at the Mission Valley Library and we are very grateful to be here again! We think it's one of the most beautiful branch libraries to be in.

Everyone is cordially invited to attend a Wikiphoto scavenger hunt (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Photo_scavenger_hunts) in (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WTYC) San Diego County (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego_County). This should be the 24th Wikipedia meetup in San Diego County.

Wikipedia is one of the leading resources of knowledge for anyone who has access to the internet. Make an impact by helping contribute to the free encyclopedia which anyone can edit, by adding free images to articles that need them (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_requested_photographs_in_San_Diego_County,_California). Come join us as we go over the basics (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Photograph_your_hometown) of (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:How_to_take_pictures_for_Wikimedia_Commons) photography (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photography), and collaborate in improving content.
