We are pleased to announce that the Finger Lakes Library System is participating in the international social media campaign, #DayofFacts on February 17, 2017.
According to the mission of the official #DayofFacts website,
On this day, museums, libraries, archives, cultural institutions, science centers and other trusted public sources of knowledge will share mission-related content using the hashtag #DayofFacts. While there are no limits on the factual content that you can share, we hope institutions will share content relevant to this particular moment in American history. By not taking an overt political stand but simply sharing mission-related, objective, and relevant facts, we will show the world that our institutions are still trusted sources for truth and knowledge.
This campaign is also an opportunity to reaffirm our institutions as welcoming places for everyone. Many of our constituents and visitors are part of groups that are feeling more marginalized than ever. Museums and cultural organizations are uniquely situated to serve as safe and welcoming places (physical or virtual) committed to their communities without exception.
We hope our member libraries and followers will use this hashtag and help spread the word that #LibrariesAreForEveryone, #LibrariesAreEssential with the #DayofFacts and #LibrariesRespond.
