Government and Heritage Library Wants You to Follow Us on Pinterest
The Government and Heritage Library has joined the Pinterest revolution. We’re pinning images from our website, the North Carolina Digital Collections, NCpedia pages, our blog, and the library’s Flickr account. If you’re on Pinterest, follow us and like and repin our pins.
Many libraries have joined Pinterest and are using it to promote their resources, programs, and staff. Launched in March 2010, Pinterest was an invitation only website until August 2012. It is very popular and features pins related to health, home decorating, recipes, books, travel, fashion, and a wide variety of topics that appeal to a multitude of interests.
The State Fair began last week, but visit our State Fair Board on Pinterest and travel back in time to some highlights of the fair including visits from Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Harry Truman. These images can also be found in Blue Ribbon Memories State Fair Collection which is part of the North Carolina Digital Collections, a joint project of the State Library and State Archives of North Carolina.
The State Library is commemorating its 200th anniversary this year and have pinned several images from our digital collection to The State Library Celebrates 200 Years Board showcasing key staff members throughout the library’s history.
Visit our Pinterest page and learn more about North Carolina, its talented authors, athletes, historic school buildings, state symbols, and more. You should also check the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources Pinterest page for more NC culture, arts and history.
