#InstaAwesome: The Keys to Success on Instagram
When more than 600 people can post on one Instagram account there needs to be guidelines and support. Hennepin County Library staff Instagrammers work across the 41 libraries, providing multiple voices and giving a full picture of what it’s like to be at HCL. Instagram is a social media platform that allows libraries to engage patrons through immediate, informal, visual storytelling--a medium for visually showcasing people, resources, and spaces.

Members from the HCL Social Media Team will share tips for creating and executing a sustainable library Instagram account. Participants will learn about tools for editing and capturing images and videos, creating slideshows and collages, and re-posting photos by the public. This session is intended for people who have an established Instagram account, people who are looking to improve their Instagram presence, or those considering developing an Instagram account for their library. No matter what size your organization is these tips and tools can help you become #InstaAwesome.
