Instagram of the Week – March 2

A brief look at ‘grams of interest to engage teens and librarians navigating this social media platform.

This week we’re focusing on school libraries and media centers. From board games to book dominos and book clubs to volunteer opportunities, school libraries can provide a place for students to have fun and unwind during free periods or before and after school. Prominent displays are one way to grab students’ attention and connect them with books and library services with which they may unfamiliar. Book themed bulletin boards can also call attention to library materials or can drum up interest for upcoming events.

We’ve included a few examples below, but we want to hear from you! Do you offer before and after school programs for your students? What’s the coolest display you’ve put together? Which bulletin board theme has been most popular? Do your teens give you input or decorate for you?

 

Have you come across a related Instagram post this week, or has your library posted something similar? Have a topic you’d like to see in the next installment of Instagram of the Week? Share it in the comments section of this post.
