Casa Grande Library Twitter

I did it! I was able to take all of the library's notifications and put them into twitter.

I set up our twitter account at

Then I dumped all of the library's rss feeds into

Now everytime the library has an update, a library event, a new book or video, or new newsletter, it goes automatically to twitter. If the content is too…

Starting Up

My library is just starting to implement many library 2.0 concepts. The thing I think is neat about websites like MySpace, Flickr, and Photobucket is that all this stuff is free. It is free to try and to play with. There are so many ways to use these tools. Finding the staff time to really play with this has been challenging with the growth in population.

some have problems with the concept of 'freedom of choice' - especially those that really want to control your choices! Not that libraries can provide everything available... but PTV & public libraries do suffer from an appalling lack of funding - especially since the golden age (for ptv at least) of the 70s.

Yes - kindered spirits indeed. PBS has that same warm fuzzy feeling that libraries seem to have. Which is very cool...
I have always appreciated the parallels btwn public television/radio & libraries. It has this intrinsic positive value associated with it that helps all these venues continue into the future (well that's my hope anyway!).

Buenos diás, Scott!
Thank you for adding me to your friends list. I'm enjoying reading about your implementation of 2.0, Twitter, etc. as I know Casa Grande is growing in population, right now.
(I still remember summers on the border and swamp coolers which have disappeared in the era of refrigerated air conditioning units!)

Hello- Regarding your IM question, we are using Gaim at the library, but I personally prefer and use Meebo. We/I have accounts in Yahoo, Google, AIM, Jabber and MSN. I'm not sure if I am answering your question correctly. If not, feel free to meebo me using the widget on my page when I'm online sometime.
