If you spend any time at all on the Internet, you are aware of the phenomena know as Pinterest. Should you have ventured in the world of Pinterest, you already know how fun (and addicting) it is. If you have not yet taken the plunge, it is time and we are here to help you; we recently launched a Pinterest site for the library.
The best way to describe Pinterest is to liken it to a bulletin board, albeit it a virtual one. Those great ideas you find online, the recipes, decorating ideas, the beautiful pictures, the funny pictures, anything that strikes your fancy can be "pinned" to your Pinterest boards which you personalize and organize with your own categories. Then, somewhat like Facebook and Twitter, you can also "follow" other pinners whose tastes and interest match your own.
Take a look at Pinning 101 for a good overview and some pinning etiquette. Then browse the library's boards where you will find all things book related. Hopefully you will decide to follow us and start your own Pinterest experience, but if you get addicted, don't say you weren't warned!
