Bookface Friday in the Library

Oh, the #bookface movement. It's genius, really. Recognized in an awesome article in the New York Times (and here's a campaign done by The Guardian), it's a hashtag that's taking book lovers by storm. And it was only a matter of time before I jumped on the bandwagon!

But first, let's look at some of the different applications with which a library or school or any ol' person could use bookface...

Social Media

I mean obviously, it's a hashtag. It's meant to be shared on social media. So here are some library's instagram/twitter finds...

East Baton Rouge Parish Library

Täby Bibliotek (library in Sweden!)

Augusta County Library

Library Display

It'd be especially great if you wanted to create a campaign to get patrons involved (post the pictures they submitted) or to promote a biography section. So many ideas!

Milpitas Library

Book Promotion

Maybe that new book that just came in would be a perfect book face.

Monterey Park Library

Encouraging Creativity

Encourage kids/patrons/yourself to get super creative! I mean, it doesn't just have to be your face...or humans...

Cheshire Library

Rolling Hills Library

Chandler Library

ANYWAY, I'm getting distracted. There's so many good ones out there. The point being, there is so much fun you could have with this.

So without further ado, here are my #bookfaces.

Oh that was too fun. Try it for yourself and don't forget to include the hashtag #bookface!
