How about a Twitter Makeover (in preparation for #Followalibrary day)?

October 1st is #followalibrary day on Twitter (thanks, Stef!).  In preparation, you might want to take a look at your library's Twitter profile and make sure you've got the right information to:

  1. help people find you 
  2. link back to your website Twitter_us
  3. let people know it's really you (using your logo or a picture of your library)

Wonder which SCLS libraries are on Twitter?

Here are the ones I've run across so far: http://twitter.com/librarykerri/scls-libraries/members

How are they using Twitter? SomeTweets

Almost all are tweeting about upcoming programs, library news and services, and closures for holidays or inservices. Some are responding to folks in their community who have tweeted about the library. Some link to interesting things they heard or read about, or to things that might be of interest to their patrons. Some mention new book displays or link to photos they have posted. At least one is tweeting about historical and news events and tying them to materials available at the library. And there's the occasional tweet to let folks know about unexpected power, phone, and internet outages.
