#LibraryTikTok Takes You Behind the Shelves

Stills from library TikTok videos, including a cat lying on a book cart, a person repairing a damaged book, and two librarians sitting on a couch

TikTok has taken the world by storm, with its catchy, short-form videos driving trends in music, advertising, news, and more.

Libraries and their staff have gotten in on the fun, using the platform to promote their programs and services, share tips and recommendations for readers, and spread the joy of literacy to the masses. While many libraries are still closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, #LibraryTikTok lets us explore the shelves virtually.
