I want to connect to Facebook and Twitter

It's easy to post your LibraryAware items directly to Facebook and Twitter. An Administrator on your account will first need to authorize your account under the Admin tab. Only Publishers and Administrators can post to your library’s accounts.

AUTHORIZE A FACEBOOK PAGE: 
Before you can post to one of your organization’s Facebook pages, you must first authorize Facebook to pull content from your LibraryAware account. You can authorize as many Facebook pages as you like. If you have multiple Facebook pages authorized, you will be able to select which page to add your content to when you post an Item to Facebook.

Note: You must already have the permissions to post to your organization’s Facebook page from your own personal Facebook account, before you can authorize LibraryAware to post to Facebook.
