So hey – are you on Pinterest yet? You really ought to be! It’s turning into an amazing collaboration between every librarian everywhere – I have so many ideas for this summer reading I literally have no idea which ones to use.
This is just a PIECE of my summer reading board…
…lots zombies & stars & everything glow-in-the-dark! It’s going to be a great summer even if the slogan is dumb. No, I’m still not over it.
What I love about Pinterest, as opposed to other bookmarking sites, is that because it’s all visual, it inspires to think beyond what’s being offered. Prior to this, I’d bookmark something, but by the time the program came around, I usually completely forgot about that great thing I found six months ago. Now, I see something, & about a million different ways I could use it goes off in my head, & it’s so much easier to plan things! & because you can organize into little boards, I’ve got each program separated along with miscellaneous boards, & I can visit & see all my ideas every time I work on a program. Love it!
It is still invite-only, but if you throw out to Facebook “I need a Pinterest invite!” I can practically guarantee you’ll get about seven people offering them to you. I had people coming out of the woodwork to give me mine!
