Pin it!

Have you heard of Pinterest?  It’s a newish social media website that has the online world a-buzzin’.  CNN called it the site of 2012 (already).  Now, I’m a baby boomer; social media doesn’t come automatically for me.  (I have a lurking-only presence on Facebook, strictly to see pictures of my grandnephew.)  But Pinterest, I’m warning you, is addictive.  It’s a huge collection of bulletin boards.  You can create as many boards as you like, and fill your board with “pins.”   This is much more exciting than it sounds; you’ve just got to go there and poke around a bit.  Just start browsing and clicking, or search for a topic of interest to you and see where you end up.  Maybe you’ll want to sign up and create some boards yourself!

And we have the perfect place for you to start: http://pinterest.com/LibraryHub/ .   Pinterest is so popular, we’re trying it as another place to let people know about all the great things available here at the library.  So follow us on Pinterest…. and don’t say we didn’t warn you.  😉
