As the Anaheim Public Library is downsizing staff and reducing open hours to the public, Library Administration wants me to help create a Virtual Library presence for the stated purpose of "Developing and deploying twenty first century library services that use the Internet and social networks to connect with users and promote library value."

So my first step toward this is to brainstorm for ideas on accomplishing this.  That is where you come in.  If you were given this assignment, what would you try to do?
