We’re trying something new on our Pinterest page this week! I’ve asked library staff to post book recommendations they’re making in real-time as they have particularly great readers’ advisory interactions. This way, we can go beyond recommending great books to the general Internet, and try to match our recommendations to particular people and reading situations more specifically. Book peeping with a purpose. Thoughts?
(As a side note, one of the reasons we are trying this is because our catalog has Pin It buttons, so it’s pretty easy to do from anywhere in the bulding. If you want to pin book covers for yourself, note that our catalog has a Pin It button under each book cover. You don’t need to be in the library or even have a Darien Library account to use it, either.)
