New to social media? A Facebook account allows you to find "friends" and family from all over the world and share everything from pictures to funny stories. Plus, you can show the world what you "like" and find interesting new ideas and meet new people based on your interests. If you're just getting started with social media, Facebook is a great place to begin!

New to Twitter? Below, you can see a sample of our "Twitter-feed," a constantly updated, real-time feed of original content, pictures, and links limited to 140 characters.  You can also see other "tweets" (posts/updates) that have been posted by others and then "re-tweeted" (shared) by the library for all of you to see! Go ahead and scroll through it to see all of our latest updates, trending "hashtags" from around the world, and the most current events in Wayne County and the surrounding area! If you're "on the go" and looking for all of the latest information from a wide range of sources, #Twitter is a great resource!

Follow us on Instagram Instagram

Instagram is a fun way to take pictures, add cool digital effects, share them, and then follow your favorite celebrities and friends as they post and like pictures from all over the world just like you. Now you can even add 15 second video clips. Instagram is similar to other social media sites in that you have a profile page, a feed of constantly updated content, and can post and share pictures, but with Instagram, you can edit and add to your pictures, in addition to searching for specific images and people by using #hashtags like #books #libraries #fun #socialmedia #lastdaysofsummer #instagood #blackandwhite #centerville #genealogy #family etc. If you're a shutterbug, love photography, and/or just like seeing what your friends and favorite celebrities are up to, Instagram is your window to the world!

Watch us on YouTube YouTube

YouTube is everywhere on social media. From the latest in pop culture, to music, to politics, to funny cat videos, you'll find it all on YouTube, even us. Follow our channel and be on the lookout for our latest videos; we have some good ones in the works. Then, when you see one, share it with all your friends on other social media sites and let everybody know how much fun it is here at the Centerville Public Library!
