Pinterest

The Library uses a lot of different websites to communicate with our patrons. One of our favorites is Pinterest! Pinterest is a virtual pin board that you can stick ANYTHING you find on the internet on. You can have boards for whatever you want.

For example, the library has Pinterest boards for book suggestions, new movies, and other fun things. Privately we have boards to share program ideas with each other.

Besides creating your own pinboards you can follow other boards too. If you have friends with Pinterest accounts you can follow their  boards to see their updates on your home page. You can even repin things onto your own boards.

Setting up a Pinterest is really easy!

You go to the link posted above, and click Request an Invite. After you give Pinterest your e-mail they will send you an invitation to join (this takes a few days).

After you make an account you want to download the “Pin it” button to your toolbar.

This button allows you to pin things easily to your boards from any website.

Be sure to check out the Library’s Pinterest too!
