Overview: One way of reaching people, especially if they’re not able to come to the library in person, is social media. Using popular platforms can provide effective and creative ways to promote your library. This webinar is designed to help attendees match their library’s goals with the available audience on several social media platforms.

During this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • determine which kind of content works best for different social platforms.
  • find the latest information on best practices for ever-changing social media algorithms.
  • handle negative comments while strengthening the connection between your library and the community.
  • build the skills and confidence you need to use social media as an effective communication tool.
