Event - Share the Wow

Last Saturday, December 13, 2014, Halifax's new central library opened after years of planning, community engagement, and patient anticipation by their library patrons. Billed as the “city’s living room", the Mayor has invited citizens to come "fall in love" with this public space, to use its collections, programs and services.

#SharetheWow was the Library's fundraising campaign c/w hashtag to build conversation on Twitter. We have collected (through Social-biblio.ca) and lightly curated (using Netlytic.org) the tweets, RTs, MTs of #SharetheWow from May 14th to December 13th, opening day.

We collected 922 tweets, RTs, and MTs and 466 Twitter accounts associated with this campaign, are represented in this word cloud. The most frequent participants are indicated by the largest type (e.g., @ilovehalifax @kingsbookstore, etc.).

Congratulations to the Halifax community - we have no doubt, this public library #Wow will continue!
