ConnectWilliamsport now has its own Facebook page and Twitter feed to help better connect the popular community calendar website with its community.
"Social media helps us raise the profile of the site, find new users, and start a dialogue with our fans," said Robin Glossner, library development director. "We'll be using Facebook and Twitter to highlight events, send people to the site, and to have fun contests and giveaways. The social media presence allows users to talk to us about what they need, like and don't like about Connect Williamsport."
In addition, the Connect Williamsport team will be offering content about the community on these social sites. Connect Williamsport's Facebook page is www.facebook.com/Connect Williamsport, and it can be followed on Twitter at @ConnectWport.
Right now Connect Williamsport is sponsoring a photo contest to find new images of Williamsport and the surrounding area to refresh its home screen.
The contest deadline for submissions is Aug. 1 and the winners will be announced on Aug. 23.
Full details about the contest are available on www.jvbrown.edu, and the library will be keeping the public up to date on its social media sites. Winners in each category will receive a $100 Visa gift card.
Connect Williamsport is a service of the James V. Brown Library, the place to go to learn, connect and grow.
