New Books on Pinterest!

Lately, we’ve been experimenting with a few ways to share our library collections with the wider community. While we often display our new additions, seasonal reads, and super classics, we don’t offer as many opportunities to view our new additions throughout our digital space, the library’s second home.

Enter Pinterest.

Given the school’s new internal website (it’s fantastic: if you haven’t seen a demo, be sure to check it out!), we can embed outside web applications for our internal audience to use. So, the library’s increased its activities on Pinterest by we have added our new books to the site. If you click on any title, you’ll be transported to the book’s home on GoodReads, where you’ll find a brief description of the book along with reader reviews.

Below, you’ll see every book we’ve received from the start of January.
