Event Details

Dumbed Down Social Media for Librarians (1 day workshop for library/literacy staff/volunteers)

All you need to know to venture into the virtual world of social networking.  Learn the basics of creating and using a Facebook profile and library page to share information and promote events through interaction with patrons.  Go viral with library photos and blogs, while learning the uses—and misuses—of library chat.  Bring an electronic file of a library photo or group of photos suitable for the library page you will create and take live.   Fearful beginner or seasoned pro, this class will demystify the 24/7 library and make the world Virtually Yours! 

Mary Haney, library director at Hennessey Public Library, will teach the class. There is no prerequisite for this class. 

 If your library or literacy organization is 60 miles or more from ODL, a travel stipend of up to $92/night for overnight stay may be available. (Stipend will be based on lodging receipt. If lodging charges are less than $92, the contract will be written for the actual amount, not $92.) Mileage also may be reimbursed at 30 cents/mile if you are paying for your own gas & cannot collect from your library/literacy organization. Stipend contracts will be made out to the library/literacy organization. It will be your responsibility to collect your reimbursement from such organization. No travel stipend contracts will be written until the class has been attended and photocopied proof of overnight stay (if applicable) has been submitted to the Office of Library Development.
