Library Advocacy & Lobbying: #followalibrary day (International)

new_bird_0What would happen if each person on twitter would mention his or her favorite library there? One definite outcome would be: the enormous amount of positive attention to this great industry. And for this reason October 1 has been declared follow a library on twitter day. 

This interesting little project was the brain child of a group of librarians from around the world  in 2010, and although their blog doesn’t seem to have been updated since 2012, judging by the tweets, International #followalibrary day seems to be alive and well.
