Social Medi-yeah-yuh!

Right before our Summer Reading Programming began, my Library Director had a fantastic idea to promote our social media presence: the phrase “Like to Follow Your Library.”  I jotted it down on a post-it and knew that I’d come up with something post-SRP.  Well, that time had come and I finally threw together our first MULTI-LIBRARY MARKETING EXTRAVAGANZA!!!  In other words, I put together a display at both our locations (with a lot of help).

The main inspiration was this pic that I discovered on Pinterest.  And I was like “Go big, or go home. Challenge accepted.”  So I went big with some extra Photoshop flair.  I photoshopped, printed, and arranged things while Mary did a LOT of cutting.  She also took charge of the smaller-scaled display at the Children’s Library:

Too cute!  I made sure to print off the fact that we have social media-exclusive giveaways, and then threw all the other cool points within the fake tweet.

So – do you wanna see the huge version of this?  I’ll show it anyway!

It’s friggin’ ‘uge!  It starts from the ceiling, and then curves down/wraps under a table.  I don’t know that we’ve ever had this large of a display before now.  Looking at the pictures, I realize that I should have put the images/tweets and Facebook interactions on a different colored background (like continue the blue color from the font).  But oh well – the goal was to be eye-catching, and I think that we succeeded.

I’ll update this post later to let y’all know if I actually saw an uptick in followers or likes.

I’ll conclude with a few close-up shot of the silliness (or cleverness, depending on your perspective) of the Facebook and Twitter posts that I created or manipulated to get our points across.
