You can now follow the New Westminster Public Library on Facebook.
If you "like" the library on Facebook, you can be among the first to know about new services such as our new microfilm scanners and the Express View DVD collection (available for three-day loan).
Every Monday is "Movie Monday": Library staff make suggestions, ask questions or take a poll on movies that are available at the library.
The same goes for novels on "Fiction Friday." This is a great way to find out more about hidden gems in the library's collections.
And if you don't have a Facebook account yet, the library can help you get started. One-on-one computer tutorials are available. For 40 minutes on a Saturday or a Tuesday evening, you can receive individual help setting up an account.
You can also get help with other computer skills as well. Call 604-527-4665 to make an appointment.
The library also has books about using Facebook, such as Facebook for Dummies, and for helping your kids make good choices online, such as Facebook Guide for Parents.
If you have a small business, you might want to check out Facebook Marketing for Dummies or The Facebook Era.
Or if you're looking for work you might want How to Find a Job on LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Other Social Networks.
If you're curious about where Facebook came from and how it grew so big, there are books like The Accidental Billionaires and The Facebook Effect.
And of course, the movie The Social Network, which is a fictionalized account of the company's founding in a college dorm room, is available at the library.
Facebook isn't for everyone, so if you decide not to use it, make sure you pick up the library's events calendar or look at the library's web site regularly so you stay informed about all our community offerings.
You can still say hello in person when you drop by!
