Griffith Library Instagram feed

We’ve seen some of you over on the @griffithlibrary Instagram, and we appreciate all your likes and comments. Fist bump to all our regulars!

But for those of you who aren’t familiar with our feed, maybe now’s the time to take a peek. You can see pics from our fabulous library events, like the recent weekend Hack-a-thon at the Gold Coast.

And it’s not just photos – we’ve dabbled with mini video content such as Boomerang and Instagram Stories. Check out the Boomerang of our massive Hack-a-thon cheque. Cool, right?

While we aim to keep you up-to-date with all the latest library resources and services, we also like to have a little fun on Insta. Okay, so maybe a lot of fun.

We keep you entertained with humorous, motivational or inspirational quotes, like the one we posted recently by Timothy Healy.

There’s also our semi-regular #bookfacefriday posts. Because who doesn’t enjoy seeing how creative some folk can be with their face, a book cover, and a mobile phone? Here’s one we posted a few days ago.

And as much as you’ll flip over the #bookfacefriday posts, you’ll love our behind-the-scenes snaps of our beloved library staff and lovely library spaces even more. Don’t you just dig this shot of one of our more colourful staff members?

Head over to Insta and scroll through the @griffithlibrary feed. If you like what you see, be sure to give us a Follow.
