You Can Build Your Library on Instagram Now…

by Tom B.

Hey visual learners – Building a Library is continuing its painful slouch into the twenty-first century by finally kicking of our brand new Instagram page! (At this rate, we’ll be joining Pinterest in 2015, just in time to pin pictures of our hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers.)

You can find us at or you can click on that cool little Instagram logo in the upper right-hand side of this page.

Building a Library Instagram

Because looking at pictures of books is way, way more fun than looking at what your co-workers are eating…

What can you expect from the Building a Library Instagram page? Mostly pictures of over-priced hipster breakfasts. (Kidding.) OR, what’s more likely, is that you’ll be seeing cool little snapshots from our home library collection, recommendations for awesome new kids’ books, fun images of interesting book paraphernalia and minutiae, and any other weird little items I can dig up during my hunt for amazing reading material for my daughter. That’s the plan, at least.

I kind of adore these Harry Potter book-ends that my mom got us…

So, subscribe to the Building a Library Instagram page and, since I’m new to Instagramming, if you know of any Instagram accounts that I really should be following, please leave your recommendations in the comments section below. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to see which filter hides my thinning hair best. (Darn you, Amaro, why can’t you hide my flaws better??)

I am looking for the set of bookends with Harry going through the wall on the 9 3/4 platform. My wife would do anything to have this for her collection. Could you please help me out with this?

I just wanted to say that I stumbled upon your website after doing some research for my advanced composition class. Our class is focused around creating a blog and writing for an audience and your blog inspired me to incorporate books for children. There isn’t much on it now because we are still in the beginning phases of building the blogs, but any tips, and feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am a young father to be and one thing that I set out to do was build her a library and I happened to find your blog that will be extremely helpful. That being said I will be following your instagram because that looks a little more up to date.
