HCLib's Tumblr

I really like the Tumblr that the Hennepin County Library created. It is really well done. The librarians post interesting photos that relate to the county's history. These include historical homes and yearbook photos of local celebrities. I think it's a great way to show off their local collection. They are lacking in multimedia objects, but they recently started a memoir project. There is a video about it that displays '6 Word Minneapolis' memoirs from the locals. It has the potential to be a really great addition to their Tumblr.

  1. I think this is a great way to get to know the library staff as well as a great tool to learn about the community. The library staff is smart to reach out and explore the history of the community because it will help them better understand the needs of the community in the end. -mollie
