Social Media

  • The Juneau Public Library endorses the use of carefully chosen social media tools as an important enhancement to communication, collaboration and information exchange between JPL staff, library users and the general public.  Social media use by libraries can provide streamlined, cost-effective marketing and outreach, as well as foster a sense of community between the library and its users.
