A year ago in February, WebJunction began the Social Library series to highlight the wonderful ways libraries use Facebook and other social media. It’s a great virtual tour of how libraries are using social media to connect with their communities, promote services and programs, and engage with their patrons and fans. It’s a place to find quick inspiration, examples of innovative engagement, and stories of lasting impact.
In the 51 volumes published in Social Library’s first year, WebJunction has featured 220 libraries and organizations,in 43 different states, and 3 Canadian provinces and representing more than a dozen different countries.
Projects have included custom tinkerCad classes, a bilingual Employment Workshop Series, a Veterans Resource Center, teen job workshops, adult coloring programs and many more. You can see some of the most popular volumes on the WebJunction website.
Do you have a story to share? If you’d like to see your library featured in the Social Library series, let them know at firstname.lastname@example.org, or find them on Facebook.
