2012 NELA Annual Conference

The 2012 NELA Annual Conference was fantastic. Not only did I give a presentation discussing our experience as a partner library with Library Renewal, but also I had the chance to sit on a great panel and give a presentation on some of our successes using social media to connect with patrons and promote library services. You can check out my slides on social media, essentially the top ten guidelines for connecting through social media (learned through a few successes and several failures) below:

Hi, I’m Ryan Livergood. I am the Executive Director of the Warren-Newport Public Library. I was previously the Director of Libraries in Arlington, Massachusetts, Assistant Director of the Dover Town Library in Dover, Massachusetts (a Library Journal finalist for “Best Small Library in America”), and I got my start in public librarianship with the Miami-Dade Public Library System. I also spent time in the Library Automation field with Sirsi Corporation (now SirsiDynix). Other positions I have had include teaching English in China and serving in the Peace Corps. I received my MLIS from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My wonderful family consists of the best wife on the planet, my two young sons, and a mostly lovable cat. I love sports, especially college basketball and football. I also love to travel, watch great films, and enjoy amazing meals with a nice glass of red wine or a craft beer. Oh, I love reading too, but I’m a librarian, so you kind of knew that already, right?
