Social Media in Government Idea Exchange - Special Programs and PR

Join us for a morning of great information on how local and state agencies are using social media.

10:15 a.m. Human Library Video Series – Sam Tyson, Charleston County Public Library. 

Sam is the Digital Content Coordinator and has worked to actively promote the library’s new Human Library Series via social media. The project started in September, 2018, with four planned discussions with members of groups who have experienced prejudice and stigma: a refugee, transgender people, members of law enforcement, and members of the Gullah Geechee community. Since the launch, members of the library’s staff have worked behind the scenes to extend the series into 2019 and at other branches. 

10:45 a.m. Meet Your Library Video Series – Mayci Rechner, Charleston County Public Library.
