For those who are not (yet) pinners, Pinterest is a social media site that allows you to create themed “boards” and “pin” websites, photos, or uploaded files to them. The boards help to bookmark and organize all those neat websites you find online. You also can browse other people's boards for ideas and inspiration.
MCPL has a few boards already which tie together books, crafts, recipes, DIY, events, articles, and other findings of a shared topic.
For instance, our newest board, Boo! Halloween, has links to craft and cooking blogs, DIY finger puppets for an at home Halloween themed storytime, and links to books in our catalog about Halloween fun for both kids and adults. There is even a homemade donut costume link!
Another board gives links to New, On Order, and Bestsellers owned by (or soon to be owned by) MCPL. Once you click on the picture, you’ll be taken straight to our catalog where you can check the availability of the book or place a hold on it.
Yet another board gives you information about all of our library branches. Just click on the picture and you’ll get location, hours, and contact information.
We’ll keep adding boards as we move through the year with relevant information and fun materials, to boot! Look for boards on library programs, learning materials, reading, books, baking and decorating, photography, Montgomery County, and book lists for kids, teens, and adults.
Happy pinning to you!
