I’ve got a regular column in the newspaper again, thanks to my job with the Liverpool Public Library.
Every week, the weekly that serves the Village of Liverpool publishes my piece that informs folks about what’s up within our four walls. Or, sometimes, what our reach is outside those walls, too.
For this guy who worked 30 years at the big daily, the smell of ink every Thursday when I open up the Eagle News/Star Review to check out story placement sure feels good.
And it’s nice to toss around story ideas with my boss.
If the editors over there like my story enough, they put it up on their site the Wednesday before the paper hits the streets. Double score.
The community deserves to know the good things going on at and about the library. My daily postings on our social media now get that added push from the paper.
Do you read a newspaper or news site to find out what’s going on in your community? Do you prefer a newsprint or online format, and why? What’s your favorite news organization, and why?
