I will help librarians utilize online platforms such as Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook to analyze trends, market their programs, and bring more teens into their library, as well as focus on online crowdfunding as a way to raise money while advocating your programs. Understanding how to be "good at the Internet" is a helpful skill for young adult librarians who are hoping to bring up attendance or keep teens engaged at their programs.
