Subject: Resolution authorizing adoption of a Social Network Policy for the Leesburg
Public Library, as recommended by the Library Advisory Board at its meeting August 1, 2012
Staff recommends adoption of a Social Network Policy for the Leesburg Public Library.
In keeping with the Leesburg Public Library’s mission to enrich “our community with service excellence to provide information, recreation and life-long learning opportunities,” the Library participates in “social software” applications whereby library staff and community members can interact through virtual (internet) communication. Currently, the Library participates on Facebook with the primary goals of two-way communication between library users and library staff, and public relations and promotion of library collection, services and events. The Social Network Policy defines the appropriate use and engagement of social media and/or social networking by the Leesburg Public Library.
The Library Advisory Board voted on August 1, 2012 to recommend this policy to the City Commission for its adoption.
1. Approve the resolution authorizing adoption of a Social Network Policy for the Leesburg Public Library, or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
There is no fiscal impact.
