is a visual discovery tool that people use to collect ideas for their different projects and interests. People create and share collections (called “boards”) of visual bookmarks (called “Pins”) that they use to do things like plan trips and projects, organize events or save articles and recipes.

Pinterest can also be a great way to share websites, images and information about books.
How can I use Pinterest in my library?
  • Using your library account, create different boards for different authors, book awards or genres - use it as a tool to share visual booklists.
  • Create boards that contain visual images that represent a book. A board for Anna and the French Kiss could contain links to photos of all the Paris locations mentioned in the book.
  • For a great example of all the ways you can use Pinterest in your school library, visit the UHigh Pinterest page.
