Chicago Public Library launches redesigned website

“The Chicago Public library launched a new website this morning, its first redesign since 2007 touting features that can be likened to “Pinterest meets Amazon.” The new site not only allows users to search the digital shelves more quickly. They can now read and post book reviews shared by users at 200 libraries around the world, and they can check their place in line for a reserved item, said Ruth Lednicer, spokeswoman for the Chicago Public Library. The library’s home page offers Pinterest-like “cards” showcasing book lists, upcoming events and blog posts by librarians that can be easily shared on social media, Lednicer said.” (via chicagotribune.com)
