THE Fuengirola Municipal Library Network has opened an account on the Instagram social network to encourage reading during the State of Alarm. This new profile is in addition to those that it already has on Facebook, Fuengirola Municipal Library Network and Twitter @biblifuengirola, which have been active for several years and have a significant number of followers. The new profile on the social network Instagram biblifuengirola seeks to promote reading and be a showcase for cultural, educational and leisure activities that take place in libraries during the Alarm status. In this sense, from the instagram account it is encouraged to send photos and short videos with the hashtags (tags): #YoMeQuedoEnCasaYLeo and #YoMeQuedoEnCasaYEstudio.
Book recommendations, video reviews of works, links to electronic books through the ebiblio platform, virtual classrooms to study through the Zoom platform or lists of favorite books, are some of the content offered from this new profile on Instagram with which it is also intended to reach the young audience, which is the main user of this social network. On the other hand, it should be noted that since the Alarm State was decreed, the loan service for electronic books from municipal public libraries has grown notably with a total of 50 new users.
