3 surprisingly good follows on social media

(NC) Although the algorithms that rule the internet are pretty good at finding the content we like, sometimes you’re still stuck scrolling through social media, waiting for something to grab your attention or tickle your fancy. Here are some offbeat accounts that won’t let you down.

1. Your local library.
To find book recommendations, author events and free workshops or classes, follow your local library on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. You might even get some behind-the-scenes stories about the origin of your favourite novel, or find out first about new book arrivals and be at the top of the request list to read them.

2. Your coolest zoo.
If you’re in need of a serious dose of cuteness or simply a chuckle, follow a non-profit zoo or wildlife sanctuary. Think awe-inspiring and adorable up-close images of tiny owls, majestic tigers and playful otters. They’re sure to become your newest obsession, and you may just learn something too.

3. Your nearest farmers.
Whether you’re a foodie or an agriculture enthusiast, you’ll want to follow Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada on Instagram. Meet the people of agriculture, the next generation of agricultural leaders and learn about the innovative work of agricultural scientists. You’ll be surprised and inspired by all the amazing work that goes into getting food from the fields to our plates. Follow them for a taste at @cdn_agriculture.
