We're on Facebook!

We are pleased to announce that the Merrimack Public Library now has a Facebook page, and we're recruiting fans. If you're not familiar with Facebook, here's the deal. Facebook allows you to set up an account and personal profile with as much or as little information about yourself and your interests as you care to share with others. You can post pictures, manage and share a "bookshelf," send messages to others, play games, take quizzes, and lots of other things.

When you join, Facebook recommends people you might like to "friend" based on information in your profile. For example, when I started my personal page, Facebook immediately suggested a "friend"--who just happened to be my childhood best friend. Facebook matched us on the basis of the same high school and also the same college. It's been lots of fun connecting with people I haven't seen in years.

When a library has a Facebook page, you can sign up to become a "fan." You'll always see what's going on at the library. We are gradually building our page, so watch for changes. If you're on Facebook, just type Merrimack Public Library in the search box to find our page, then click on Become a Fan.
