  • Market the library’s resources.
  • Post pictures and videos of people enjoying and using your collection, partaking in events and guest speakers. People will want to get in on the fun, too!
  • See Twitter as an extension of your organization’s customer service. Interact with patrons, respond to all questions, thank them for retweeting you, reach out!
