MOUNT VERNON — “Facebook and Twitter: What’s the Hype?” is the topic for the Brown Bag Chat on Wednesday, Feb. 23, at noon at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry St., Mount Vernon.

Beth Hoeffgen, computer technology instructor at the public library, and Jessica Horlacher, who is in charge of the Connect Ohio Internet access program, will lead the presentation. Learn about Facebook and Twitter — what they are, what they do, how to set them up, work them and use them, competently and safely.

Hoeffgen has a Ph.D. in philosophy from The Ohio State University (1987) and a Master of Information and Library Science from Kent State University(2004). She has worked in the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County system for 10 years, primarily in Children’s and Young Adult Service, and more recently as the technology educator for the system.

Horlacher holds two bachelor’s degrees in business administration and business forensics. She is enrolled as a graduate student with Capella University, working toward an MBA in 2012.

There will be time for questions — and answers will be provided.

The Brown Bag Chats, sponsored by the Adult Services Department of the public library, are free and open to the public.

Participants can bring a bag lunch; beverages will be provided.

For more information call 392-2665, ext. 230.
