Social Media Management

Sojourner Truth Library

During the fall 2017 semester at SUNY New Paltz, myself and three other student assistants collaborated to create original content for Sojourner Truth Library’s social media. Averaging 75-80 about posts per week across our three platforms (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook), we developed strategies to engage our target audience; hone our writing for social copy; and improve our photography and image editing skills. Below are some examples of my contributions, including original photography and copy for Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Take your leisure reading into town! Jasper, a former STL Zine Library intern, curled up recently at Cafeteria Coffeehouse on Main Street with a copy of “The Penelopiad” by Margaret Atwood, author of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” This lesser-known title is centered around the character Penelope from Homer’s “The Iliad,” offering a nuanced exploration of her life as a loyal wife and dutiful leader of the kingdom of Ithaca while her husband, Odysseus, was off at sea. Learn more about “The Penelopiad” at Goodreads.com: bit.ly/2y93g1D. You can also check out an audio book version from our Media Collection! . #peacelovelibrary #nplibrary #sunynplibrary #sojournertruthlibrary #stl #npsocial #sunynewpaltz #suny #sunyla #newpaltz #college #ilovecollege #collegellife #librariesofinstagram #library #libraries #loveyourlibrary #books #bookstagram #margaretatwood #thepenelopiad @ihavenow

Channel your inner feminist with this week’s book feature from our Juvenile Collection, “Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls” by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo. This awe-inspiring title is crammed full of fem-forward tales, including mini-biographies of prominent women politicians, scientists, pioneers, and more. . From Goodreads: “‘Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls’ is a children's book packed with 100 bedtime stories about the life of 100 extraordinary women from the past and the present, illustrated by 60 female artists from all over the world. This book inspires girls with the stories of great women, from Elizabeth I to Serena Williams.” . #peacelovelibrary #nplibrary #sunynplibrary #sojournertruthlibrary #stl #npsocial #sunynewpaltz #suny #sunyla #newpaltz #college #ilovecollege #collegellife #librariesofinstagram #library #libraries #loveyourlibrary #books #bookstagram
