Update: A New Free to use Photo Site

I just came across a new free photo site called https://unsplash.com/  if you are creating visuals for your library’s social media feed, they have great pictures of books and people reading. Perfect for combining pictures and quotes. I was inspired by the picture below:

Books Stacked Everywhere - from unsplash.com
Books Everywhere

So I headed off to the internet to find a quote that I thought was perfect for these random stacks of books.

“The old man was peering intently at the shelves. 'I'll have to admit that he's a very competent scholar.' Isn't he just a librarian?' Garion asked, 'somebody who looks after books?' That's where all the rest of scholarship starts, Garion. All the books in the world won't help you if they're just piled up in a heap.” ― David Eddings, King of the Murgos
Organization – the secret power of Librarians!

Using the tip I mentioned in this post, I combined the text and image into a picture sized for Twitter.

And then because I’d fallen down into the internet quote-hole I used another picture from unsplash and a terrific quote from the always library friendly Neil Gaiman.

“It's still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.” ― Neil Gaiman
We love Neil Gaiman

If you want to look back – I have a previous post on other free graphics sites.
