Marlene's App of the Month: Pinterest

Our digital librarian, Marlene says: "Pinterest is one of my favorite apps. I use the app almost every day to discover and save creative ideas for my hobby, craft and travel interests. It’s easy to subscribe to categories with a common theme, or just search an interest." You can use Pinterest online at www.pinterest.com or download the app in the Google Play or App Store.
