Social Media Ambassadors

The Austin Public Library invites you to participate in extending our reach into the community by becoming a Social Media Ambassador or #APLambassador. Help raise awareness of the Library on social media and at the same time, raise the Library’s awareness of you, its supporter.

Become a Social Media Ambassador

Ambassadorship is one way to volunteer for the Library - no application required! Simply sign up to receive #APLambassador emails (the sign up form is also on this webpage). The Library is active on several social media platforms. We’re organizing ambassadors across platforms through email. We’ll give you the scoop on Library programs and projects and highlight relevant hashtags.

Though your participation takes place online, occasionally we organize special in-person events at the Library just for our ambassadors:

  • October 2017: ambassadors got a sneak preview of Austin's new Central Library before the grand opening on October 28.
  • June 2018: ambassadors got a sneak preview of APL After Dark, a new event series taking place after normal operating hours at the Central Library.
  • August 2019: ambassadors were treated to an appreciation party and sneak preview of exciting, upcoming library events that would benefit from their support and social networking.
