make the most of your library
Use social media to cast a wide net and watch it grow!
Your library has a webpage or blog, but is that enough?
Think of the impact this would have on your library. With this one simple website, you can share, collaborate and learn from students, educators, colleagues and friends. Here are some tips:
Follow people with similar interests. Do a search of names and follow. Not only that, but look at the followers of the ones you follow. There's a wealth of information on colleagues in just that step alone
Use hashtags. Put these at the beginning or end of your tweet. Ones to use for libraries would include:
#tlchat (teacher librarian chat)
#edchat (education chat)
#yabooks (young adult books)
#childrenslit children's literature)
#aasl (American Association of School Librarians)
Join a tweetchat! Tweetchats set up a specific time and day where people join in using the preferred hashtag. Update the hashtag regularly to join in the conversation. See if your district does tweetchats. If not, find one and be part of a community.
