Follow Our Blog: There’s an App for That

22 Sep Follow Our Blog: There’s an App for That

Did you know that the library has a blog? Our librarians are regularly writing blog posts with interesting stories, news, and helpful tips. The posts form a news feed, kind of like a newspaper.

In order to stay up to date on recent posts, consider using a free app on your phone or tablet. With these apps you select the blogs you want to follow and the apps will fetch and notify you any time there is new content.

We have experimented with two that are available for Android and iOS devices: Feedly and Bloglovin. Both apps can also be accessed using WiFi on a laptop or personal computer.

Bloglovin: Install the Bloglovin app on your device and create an account. In the app tap the menu at the top of the screen. Select “Explore” from the list, then tap the magnifying glass symbol to search for a blog that you want to follow. Next search for #mylplibrary to find LPCPL and then follow our blog. Alternatively, go to bloglovin.com on the Internet, create an account, and sign in. Then do the same search to follow our blog.

You can use a similar process to search for, follow, and stay up to date on your other favorite blogs or news sites.

We invite you to try one of these apps and start following our blog the easy way. And never miss another post from the library!
