There’s Facebook and there’s Bookface

Staff member, Jenny Curtis, has enhanced our presence in digital media. Bookface is a worldwide social media phenomenon. The trend started in 2012 and has evolved into precision photography experiments that libraries and bookstores across the globe share. It is a visually appealing and fun way to share what the library has to offer. Libraries are community spaces, and making a really great bookfacetakes many hands (and faces). You can find us on Facebook @saranaclakefreelibrary, on Twitter @SLFreeLibrary and Instagram @saranaclakefreelibrary.
