Credo Reference: January Social Media Content for Libraries

At Credo we understand the need for libraries to write interesting social media content to engage your users and raise awareness of valuable resources and services. That’s why we’ve created this monthly blog post with daily social media posts featuring interesting observances, trivia, this-day-in-history, and humor that your library can copy/paste to your own feed with no attribution necessary. Our Topic Pages offer a great way for users to explore background information and context, while gaining familiarity with your Credo platform.
