BPLG Facebook page gets a Facelift :)

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Thanks to Pati Morán, the BPLG Facebook page has a new look and a new location.  Keep on top of quick notes of interest, what’s going on in the Bay Area and other areas of the world, along with photos from current and past BPLG events (look to BPLG’s Flikr photostream for even more photos). Read Pati’s note below about our Facebook changes:

Saludos BPLG Community,

Have you visited our brand new Facebook Page at We are in the process of consolidating our About Bibliotecas Para La Gente Facebook Group and our Bee Plg Facebook Page. Please take a moment to “like us” so that you continue to receive our updates–we will be deleting our old pages on March 31, 2011 . Also, make use of our new BPLG page by sharing content–events, websites, photos, video, and other resources–with the BPLG community.

Un abrazo,
