    Hi! The Johnson County Library in Kansas started twittering a little over a month ago. It’s great for getting tidbits out about programs, holiday closings, etc! We use for adult features and for teen features.

    Thanks Buffy! I added theunquietlibrary to the list – under Creekview High School. I first heard about theunquietlibrary blog from other folks tweeting about it on Twitter. They were saying really positive things about it. I’ve checked out the blog as well and am impressed in how you’re incorporating web 2.0 into the High School library!

    Hi Sarah!
    Thanks for sharing the Johnson County Library’s twitter pages. I updated the list and added them both. Your comment made me wonder – I would be interested to know if there are other libraries out there with more than one Twitter account. It makes sense to have a different accounts – that way you’re targeting your audience specifically. Thanks again! :)

  5. Hi Lindy! Thank you for adding us to your list and for the kind words! I love Library 2.0! :-)

  6. The Hibbing Public Library also Twitters!

  7. The Canton Public Library in Canton, MI has been tweeting since September.

    Thanks Columbus Metropolitan Library! You’ve been added to the list. I see you have 159 followers already – that’s awesome.

    I hope you don’t mind. But I used your lists together with the lists on Library Success wiki to create the Library twitter league which tracks number of followers of twitter accounts in real time. I further supplemented the list by doing manually searches for “Library”, “Libraries”, “lib”, “reference” and manually adding the relevant ones. As of now, I have a list of 400+ Library twitter accounts.

    So far the page lists ranks accounts only by number of followers, but I’m told that Twitter league is currently working on adding some additional statistics i requested, including follower/following ratios, signal to noise ratios, etc…

    You can embed the table into any webpage
