Over a week ago we added the ‘share’ buttons to the detail page of each event. This is the same share button which can be found in the Library Catalog. It allows patrons to share an event to email addresses, tweet it, add it to their Facebook page, etc.
The idea, is to provide a way patrons can remind themselves of an upcoming event. It’s not as good as sending out email reminders within a day of the event but it’s a good start. Also, the potential is there for you to promote your library programs if the library district elects to have a Twitter and/or Facebook page.
