April 11-17, 2010 is National Library Week with the theme of “Communities thrive @ your library.” Author, Neil Gaiman will serve as the Honory Chair.
Our library does celebrate National Library Week in terms of special programming for the public, but as part of the social media team I plan to our library strut its stuff, providing facts about our library’s usage.
This past Saturday on my personal twitter account, I tweeted #libraryfacts from ALA’s Quotable Facts About American Libraries and plan to re-tweet those during National Library Week to create awareness about the value of libraries in each community. I might use information from How Do Libraries Stack Up, if I can trim it down into 140 characters.
Local Librarian Tweetup
