The study aims at examining the use of Web 2.0 in Festus Aghagbo Nwako Library which is referred to as library 2.0 as it relate to the awareness of librarians. A review of literature revealed that of all the tools of Web 2.0, the core library 2.0 tools include, blog, Wiki, Instant messaging, podcast and RSS. Result revealed that only the digital department of the library use 2 out of the 5 core library2.0 tools. Librarians awareness of library 2.0 tools is low which can be attributed to un automation of the main library. Problems militating against the use of library 2.0 in the library include poor awareness among librarians, shortage of professional manpower and non automation of the library. Strategies for enhancement of library 2.0 usage include awareness creation among librarians, provision of stand by generator and automation of the main library.
