readers’ advisory takes off when offered through facebook

I ran across two articles (running consecutively) at the Library Journal site that declare “how I do it good” stories about mounting day long Readers’ Advisory through Facebook. Both accounts are interesting and “novel” (I wasn’t able to find exactly the same type of program, day long or otherwise, through a Web search). In the first, slightly longer account of this type of RA, Alison Kastner of the Multnomah County Library (Portland, Oregon) states that her for member team of RA librarians interacted with about 100 patrons via the Internet on a day in June 2010. I was able to locate the Facebook transactions for a more recent Facebook RA Day (May 2011) at Multnomah; you may find the give and take interesting. In the LJ article Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Public Library’s Richard J. Rua mentions that his library’s Reconnect with Reading program also initiated an interactive Facebook RA Day. CCPL’s day long program attracted 200 participants.
