Virtual Branch Tour

Michael: Recently you posted about Mickey’s 16 cool uses for using Flickr at a library. I’d like to pass on a new example we have at the Johnson County Library. Our Lackman Branch (we have 13 branches! Wow!) created a Flickr account to give everyone a virtual tour of their branch. They even included photos on the staff side! Just wanted to pass on the Flickr goodness!

Thanks sarah. Nice to see uses such as this… Again, this is something any library can do and for relatively little time and money? Have you tried a virtual tour on Flickr?
