Libraries & Librarians on Pinterest

By now, nearly everyone knows about Pinterest, a social media tool that has changed the way we collect things online. And we suspect that some of the best boards are from our lovely librarian friends. Because nobody knows collecting and organizing information like librarians.

In honor of #alaac14, we submit this list of our favorite literacy and library-oriented boards for your edification and entertainment. And don’t forget to check out the ALA is in Vegas board!

Star Pinners and Boards

American Libraries Magazine
Excellent digital libraries board as well as a ‘What’s Happening in Seattle in 2013’ board that captures the highlights from the Midwinter Event.

Erin Wing
Seattle-based teacher pins ideas for creating a literacy-rich home. Great board with over 730 pins of literacy activities.

Library and Information Science
A collaborative board of (our fav!) library and information science related stuff with over 130 pinners.

New York Public Library
Seriously, all the boards here are great, but some may swoon over the Downton Abbey one.

The Librarian’s List
A group board with over 1000 contributors that is maintained by the O’Fallon Public Library.

Somers Library
207 boards and over 13k pins; all on excellent, intriguing categories. Yum!

About Lisa Gettings

Lisa Gettings is an SEO Strategist for Wheelhouse Search as well as the former editor of the Information Blog. She will cop to being an obsessive information organizer, dialectical thinker, and lover of old-timey phrases. However, it will take a wicked-good dirty martini to get her to sing an aria and admit the depths of her Joss Whedon addiction. She writes & makes jewelry on the side.


  1. I appreciate the timing of this post, at ALA in LV its a great reminder that there is no place home @iSchool for pointers and partners in delivering ideas and information.

  2. The Librarian’s List was created and is maintained by O’Fallon Public Library, not Denver Public. Thanks.
