End of An Era

Its a sad day today!! Firstly it is the anniversary of my husband's death and our wedding anniversary. Also I have been asked by management at Lithgow City Council to no longer Twitter or Blog as Wallerawang Library as council has no social media policy.

Thank you for following Wallerawang Branch Library over the last few years. I am depressed and extremely disappointed at the decision.

Kindest Regards

Diana Simpkins


  1. It's about time Lithgow Council joined the 21st Century and got a Social Media Policy. You have done much to promote libraries and Lithgow Council.

    I have enjoyed your tweets and blog posts, thank you for your enthusiasm. Do keep blogging and tweeting as yourself and let us know your blog address and twitter username.

  2. This is incredibly disappointing news. The lithgow region is starved for information and the gaps are filled by destructive gossip rather than useful communication. In 2011 social media is not a recent invention. Most public figures have a social media presence while Lcc wishes to hold back the tide with micro management. Good luck getting a social media policy when they can't even produce a decent media release. I'll be letting them know how archaic this position is.

  3. Ps i am sorry to read about the anniversary of your husband's death. My thoughts are with you.

  4. I've nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Love your blog.

    Guess you can't respond but wanted you to know othere appreciate your work.
