Library Shelfie Day!

Did you even know that was a thing? Well, it is. The fourth Wednesday in January every year is Library Shelfie Day. Created by the New York Public Library, today is the day book lovers get to showcase their beauties across social media. (Wait, isn’t that every ay? LOL) Well…
Some collectors of books tend to arrange their collections so their spines can be admired pleasantly.  Others have a system of organization that results in an alternative art form.  However our books are organized on the shelf, on Library Shelfie Day, they are meant to be photographed and shared on social media.

Do you organize by author name? Color? Height? Spine width, publication date, genre? There are a multitude of ways you can pick and choose. Some people change their systems around every month. Others have no system. They just put their books on the shelf in random, haphazard ways. But whatever you choose, what’s most important is that you are a bibliophile. And the love of books, whether smartly arranged, or stacked arbitrarily, brings us all together. 

So go ahead, snap a photo of your bookshelf. And don’t forget to use #LibraryShelfieDay when you share on social media.
