8/21/14 UPDATE: Please note that this workshop has been cancelled due to critical health issues that the instructor is having to deal with right now. She plans to reschedule this for late January or February. Watch our blog for updates.

Do you keep hearing about social media, but feel left out? Not sure where or how to start, or if it’s even the right fit for your church library or ministry? Want to learn how your church library can use social media to promote your collections, and to engage Christian readers and media users?

This FREE workshop, hosted by the Southern California Chapter of ECLA, will explain the different types of social media and their primary demographics, while showcasing good examples of how libraries and ministries use these tools for marketing and outreach.
