Library Enhances Digital Age Outreach by Texting, Tweeting & Friending on Facebook

Whether you’ve seen the new movie “The Social Network,” you have crops you need to tend on Farmville, or you actively hunt for what’s trending on Twitter, all of us are aware of the new social media craze.  The library is embracing this trend by launching a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and Text A Librarian service with the hopes of connecting with more of you.  We hope to make it as convenient as possible for you to access the wealth of information and resources the library provides – plus it’s fun!

You can find the Library’s new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CecilCountyPublicLibrary.  We will post information about exciting upcoming library programs, interesting book recommendations, and ask for your feedback and input.  Are vampires so last season?  Can’t wait to put your hands on the latest memoir?  What do you think will be the next trend in books and films?  We want to know!  We’d love to get your feedback on this and other library related topics, so don’t forget that we’ll be just one click of the ‘Like’ button away!

Are you interested in another way to connect with the library online?  Try following our tweets at www.twitter.com/ccpltweets. We’ll be tweeting about our great programs, book recommendations and library news.  Our feed will include a Book of the Day, helpful web resources, small business information and more.  If you haven’t started tweeting yet, be sure to sign up for an account at www.Twitter.com and follow the Cecil County Public Library. We don’t think you can have too much of the library, but be warned:  tweeting is addictive.

For those who rely on their cell phones, we’re now just a text away. You can get fast, reliable info by composing a text to 66746 and starting a reference question with the keyword CCPL411.  Do you have an event outside and you’re not sure if it’s going to get rained out?  Try texting our librarians for the latest weather forecast.  Are you at the grocery store and forgot that list of ingredients?  Try texting the library to find out what was in that special recipe.

If you need that little bit of extra help to start a Facebook page or Twitter Account, be sure to check out these great books at your local Cecil County Public Library branch
