On Monday, Feb. 11, Brittany Wilson, Buffy Andrews and I will head down to Paul Smith Library of Southern York County in the YDR’s NewsVroom.
It’s part of our Year at the York County Libraries, a monthly series we kicked off in January at Dover Area Community Library. For that session, we taught middle school-aged Girl Scouts what it means to work in a newsroom.
For this session, we’ll focus on social media. We’ll talk about how the Daily Record/Sunday News uses platforms like Twitter and Facebook to share information, focusing on our books coverage. For example — we use this blog and our Twitter account (@ydrbooks) to feature community members and authors in York County and surrounding areas.
Buffy, our social media coordinator, will be on hand to talk about different ways social media accounts can be used by the community as well — from authors to businesses to grandparents.
Interesting in joining us? We’ll be talking from 4 to 5 p.m. on Monday. Have questions on the NewsVroom series? Leave a comment or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s on tap for March? A session on best practices for blogging, scheduled for 5:30 p.m. March 13 at Martin Library, 159 E. Market St., York. Editorial page editor Scott Fisher, who manages www.yorkblog.com, will be our expert for that session. Stay tuned for details!
