Some of the best images you will see when you are our Facebook fan, though, begin with you. When you share your photos with us, you have sent them out into the wide world of the Internet, where there is that slim possibility that they could have 15 minutes of fame. At the very least, you have made our Facebook page a two-way street, which we like very much. One of our Facebook friends and her family used the recent snow to create a pair of snow people who were the ultimate Colts fanatics. The Kokomo Tribune also featured a photo of the snow-couple, and from one source or another it came to the attention of a Colts’ publicity representative who sent along a message for the family. We are honored to have been a part of this family’s fun. Some of my favorite images from KHCPL’s Facebook page started with you.
If you, like me, think there are times when a picture can be worth a thousand words, it’s time for you to look us up on Facebook. If you haven’t taken the plunge yet into the world of social networking, it’s easy, and we’d be glad to share the basics with you at the library reference desk. We might even take your photo while you’re there.
