Social Library


This Social Library is a regular WebJunction feature surfacing some of the amazing work from the libraries that we follow on Facebook. It's a great virtual tour of how libraries are using social media to connect with their communities, promote services and programs, and engage with their patrons and fans. If you'd like to see your library featured in the Social Library series, please let us know via, or find us on Facebook.

The Social Library Series spreadsheet (xls) collects all volumes and can be sorted by state, library, and topic.
