Social media has always been an important tool for reaching your school community. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, it took on a critical new role, as virtual communication became the best way for schools to stay connected with students, staff and parents.

Now, even as schools transition back to in-person instruction, social media remains a vital channel for getting the word out - especially when it comes to your school library! But navigating all the different platforms and finding the right voice for each can be challenging - which is why we’re here to help! In this webinar, Caroline Carr, a Library Media Specialist and bona fide Twitter expert will join Christina Samek, Outreach Specialist and social media graphics whiz from OverDrive to lead a crash course on how to become your best social media self.

You’ll learn:
* Best practices for curating content from platform to platform
* Strategies to reach the right audience and build a follower base
* How complimentary, ready-made graphics and kits can help turbocharge your branding
* Real-world stories of how great social media made an impact

Attendees will walk away ready and excited to take to the web and put what they’ve learned into practice in their own districts - you won’t want to miss it!
