Wikipedia: How Volunteers Build the World's Knowledge

On Thursday March 9th Katherine Maher, the chief executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation, visited the Darien Public Library to share how volunteers all across the world contribute to one of the world's most popular websites- Wikipedia. The Wikimedia Foundation is the non-profit organization behind Wikipedia through which volunteers in multiple countries and languages have free access to edit various articles and stories. From Katherine's presentation, it was inspiring to see how the world comes together through Wikimedia to contribute to a common purpose- to educate the world. This event was co-sponsored by Volunteer Square.
