The Library Gets Pinteresting

pinterest-iconJust when you thought the library couldn’t get any cooler, we’re now on Pinterest!

What is Pinterest, you say? Simply, Pinterest is an online scrapbook of your favorite things. As you click-click-click your way around the internet, you find stuff you want to remember: books you want to read, DIY projects you want to try, places you want to travel to, quotes that inspire you, images that make you laugh, recipes you want to cook, fashions you wish you could pull off…   Pinterest makes remembering websites a visually exciting experience, using only images and small bits of text that link back to their original source.

Now you can see your library’s favorite things! (Note: You do not have to be a Pinterest user to benefit from the library’s account.)

We’re just revving our engines now, so please give us your feedback. If you check us out today, you’ll find themed book lists for adults and kids, some homeschooling ideas, and staff book recommendations. See a book you like? Click its picture to place a hold (you’ll be routed to our website). How easy is that? And for our patrons who love to pin, you can pin great books, audiobooks, DVDs and other materials straight from our site!

You’ll also see an exciting board highlighting our upcoming program, Tackling Paper Clutter. You’ll find ideas on purging, organizing, and systematizing. You’ll see organization books available at the library, compelling infographics, and instructions on how to find FREE magazine articles about managing paper clutter.

Stay tuned for more exciting stuff on our Pinterest page! We’ll be adding more homeschooling resources, as well as information on jobs and small businesses, and more.
