March Social Media Content for Libraries

We understand  your library wants to post fun content to social media but that you might not have the time to dedicate to writing it, so we’d like to help!

Below you will find daily posts, all under Twitter’s 140 character limit (good for Facebook too), that you can copy/paste at your leisure, each linking to a Topic Page, which, for Credo Online Reference Services or Literati subscribers can be a gateway to all kinds of e-resources.

This content is free for the taking, no character-eating attribution to us necessary!

PS: The images below are all in the public domain, with attributions at the bottom of the page.
