Social Media & Podcast
We are slowly but surely building up our Social Media! You can find us on:
There are a lot of videos intended for younger kids on here, BUT there are also a lot of videos from past programs, like Community Cooking With The Co-Op! We are slowly building and organizing our videos to reach audiences of all ages.
This is the platform we are most active on currently. We KNOW it's one of the oldest platforms, don't judge us ;) That's why we are also trying to be more active on...
Lots of pictures of recommendations, events, and library shenanigans. Maybe by the time you read this we'll have been brave and figured out IGTV!
We recently took the jump into TikTok. We think it's a lot of fun, even if we don't completely understand it yet! So far we have a few videos about library life... we may be a little snarky, but we are still #Professional :P
Join Brittney and Joshua as they chat about their favorite Fantasy and Sci-Fi reads, play games (or debate about movie scenes), and recommend books to patrons!
