The Louisville Free Public Library is reaching out on social media, recently making a new profile on the ever popular Instagram. Just ahead of their widely popular series event, the How To Festival, the Louisville Free Public Library launched a new social media profile on Instagram. They’ve been posting great photos of different programs around the library system. You can find them by searching the username @LouisvilleFreePublicLibrary. Check out some of these:

You can also follow LFPL on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The Library is branching out to reach more people throughout Louisville and Jefferson County, always earmarking that next way to stay within the touch of a button or the swipe of a touch screen with their users. This new social media twist is an excellent way for the Library to continue to reach their current followers and library lovers, as well as reach new potential library users in a user-friendly and entertaining format. They may need to be added to this Top 13 Louisville Instagram profiles!
