How do you feel about Social Networking sites? “Libraries cannot afford to ignore the social networking potential to attract new, younger and more technologically interested customers.” "It's where the patrons are so we need to be visible to them-marketing, information and building community online. Not all patrons have to walk through the door. We can make connections with and serve online those patrons who, for whatever reason, won't be physically in the library." “At this time we feel the drawbacks outweigh the benefits." “not sure--need more info"
