Being Social @ the Library

Are you on social media?  So are we!  We have recently launched an effort to bring more timely information and a wider diversity of content to our Facebook (New Ridgefield Library) and Twitter (@ridgefieldlib) accounts. 

Facebook and Twitter are great places to get updates about what’s going on at the Library.  In recent weeks, this has meant, among other things, a lot of notifications about weather-related closings and schedule changes!  Our weekly e-newsletter and other e-mail program announcements are also posted to both sites.

Many of our staff are now actively involved in posting items and links we think our library users might enjoy – reviews of new books, author interviews, research studies and even silly photos and videos.  For example, a recent Facebook post about “The Goldfinch” prompted a lively dialogue among readers (and non-readers) of this weighty volume!  On Twitter watch for #FridayReads, where we, along with many other book people, post the books we are currently reading.

We would love to know what you think about the items we post.  We urge you to follow us, like us, comment, share, re-tweet or otherwise contribute to what we hope will be an ongoing conversation about libraries, books, our community and much more.
