What is Pinterest? It is a visual social media site, where you can pin ideas, inspirations, information, videos and things you like on a Board and then share them with your followers. Pinterest is simple to use. Go to and click on the "Join Pinterest" button and create an account. You can re-pin pictures already on Pinterest or find your own pictures elsewhere. Adding a Pin It button to your browser toolbar is quick and easy, so you can add pictures at a moment’s notice. (A. Siudzinski, Senior Library Information Specialist)
