@LibraryPD for Library News
Are you following us on Twitter? If not, you should be! Three times a week, we find and tweet articles about all things new and exciting to the library industry.
From news on the state of libraries worldwide, to tips and tricks on how to spice up your services to local feel good stories, we tweet it all at @LibraryPD.
Our Twitter account is a “watch dog” of sorts. In the past three months, we’ve shared stories about library closures, the political issues surrounding libraries in the US and the UK, and insightful commentaries written by accomplished librarians. Here are some our more recent and popular tweets:
What makes our Twitter page special is the quality of content we deliver. Apart from searching across the worldwide web for content librarians will love, we also search across our PressDisplay catalogue of 2,300+ newspapers and magazines from 100 countries and in 55 languages. This way, we’re able to find local, neighborhood stories and share them with you, such as the case of the 78 year overdue book returned to Chicago Public Library or the mysterious antique gun found in a hallowed out donated book at a Northwest Indiana library.
So if you’re a librarian and you’d like to be a little more in the know about what’s going with libraries around the world, make sure to follow us at www.Twitter.com/LibraryPD. Join your fellow librarians in following us, and make sure to direct message us your interesting news and stories!
