Instagram for libraries workshop

PG workshops IG

Instagram is a great promotional tool that you can use to connect with your library members and to reach non-members. It is a highly visible platform that allows you to showcase your library spaces, resources, programs, promote future events and even introduce your staff to the community. The only limitation is your imagination!

Have you ever looked at great library Instagram accounts and wondered how they do it? How do they grow their following, create their amazing content and engage with their audience in such a dynamic way? New York Public Library has 292,000 followers, State Library of Victoria has 27,000 followers and State Library of New South Wales has 11,000 followers.
