the future of libraries in the digital age
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 http://twitter.com/cglibrary
Then I dumped all of the library's rss feeds into http://www.rss2twitter.com
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 long for the message, it automatically creates a tiny url. Like this:

Now I just need to customize the feeds a bit for different users, but I was amazed at how easy it was to set it up. I don't know how many users will subscribe to it, but the functionality is there. I bet the more I can customize it, the more people will subscribe since it will not be an overwhelming amount of content. Its amazing how many free things there are out there that provide great service!
