I love the power of social media in libraries. It’s an amazing way to share what you’re doing, promote your programs, and reach out to students and community members. Being a visual learner, Instagram is definitely one of my favorite platforms. It makes it easy to share striking visual images with as much or as little text as you prefer.
It’s no secret that Instagram is one of my favorite social media platforms. I think it’s one of the best tools out there for reaching students and community members with what you’re doing? But how do you share those same stories with those who can’t/won’t have an Instagram account/never bother to check it? My answer: creating a physical display of my school Instagram account in my library.
In my post on AASL Knowledge Quest, I share my reasoning behind creating a physical Instagram display. I also share the practical details of how to put one together (spoiler: it’s super easy and you likely already have all the materials you need).
In the post you can learn more about:
- Why it’s important to have a physical version of your digital sharing in your library
- Step-by-step directions for creating your display
- Tips for printing out your photos
