Summer Library Challenge: Library Social

Welcome to the second week of the Summer Library Challenge! Check out the Summer Library Challenge page for all details of this awesome event.

I’m always surprised by how active my library can be online and with social media. I especially like their Facebook page. Through Facebook, I found out that they have a free music service that I will need to check out. I also just followed my library on Twitter and it looks like they post at least twice a day.

So your challenge this week is to find out what kind of social media your library uses and if it would be useful, follow them! Let me know in a post, tweet, etc what you found useful!

One of the really awesome things is that my library has their own Youtube channel. I loved their Talk like a Pirate Day video, so I’m embedding it below.

Also, check out this awesome readathon, happening this week, hosted by Rachael @ Rachael Turns Pages

    I am amazed at everything our library has to offer…all at no charge to its patrons. Ebook and audiobook downloads, magazines, book/music/DVD/audiobook check outs, craft classes….there’s always something happening at the library.

  2. I know that my local library offers e-books and has a FB page, but I’m not sure how active they are otherwise. I’ll definitely have to check it out!

  3. My library seems to be semi-active. The only thing I could find was a FaceBook page, and even that’s only updated every couple days or so. Oh well!

  4. I was just thinking today Kristin about the Library Challenge. I’m always telling myself I should pick up more random books. Ever since I joined Goodreads I always know about books before I pick them up at the library. I thought about it for my readathon next year, but then I thought why not this year with your library challenge. The way I was thinking about it was to challenge participants to go to their favorite section in the library and close their eyes and pick a random book. Then probably read the summary to see if it is something you would enjoy, but have otherwise not heard of the book. Then go home and read it. I would even be willing to do it as a challenge this week in the read-a-thon even though my pile doesn’t need any more books. Let Me Know what you think. Otherwise I think this would be a great Monday post at some point during the challenge. My email is or otherwise you can just comment on my blog.
