Social Networks and Marketing: the Lester Public Library Experience

I was hired for my first-time directorship at the Lester Public Library (LPL), Two Rivers, Wisconsin in March of 2007.  Becoming a part of this rural community of roughly 12,500 people driven by agriculture and manufacturing on the shores of Lake Michigan was going to be a challenge.  I wanted to have an active role in the community, sooner rather than later. To my delight, social networking helped me achieve this goal, quicker than I had ever envisioned.

TechSoup's New Social Media Curriculum

TechSoup's new Social Media Curriculum is a great site to check out if you are trying to catch up with the most used social media tools, looking for a great tool for training purposes, or wanting an easy way to educate newbies. It also has some great ideas for using these technologies to build your community connections including tons of tips, videos, and links

Technology at your fingertips.

My traveling cohorts, James and Shinjoung, are tech savvy librarians who love sharing tips with other fellow librarians. On Friday, they got their chance at the Orland Free Library.
