If you haven't heard of social website Pinterest, odds are you will soon. The "virtual pinboard" is seeing an explosive growth in popularity - The New York Times reported that it recently earned the title of the fastest website to reach 10 million visitors in just one month.
As the name suggests, Pinterest is social networking website that allows you to "pin" sites that you think are interesting, beautiful or entertaining to your boards for other Pinterest users to see. It can be a place to find inspiration, to share your own ideas and projects, and to connect with others who share the same interests (putting the "interest" in "Pinterest").
Since we're always looking for new ways to connect, we've carved out our own space on Pinterest. We have boards of bestsellers, recommendations, photos of and around the library, plus a board of somewhat random library things that we think are worth sharing.
So if you're on Pinterest already, follow us! If you haven't signed up yet, request an invitation. Let us know what you think and happy pinning!
