National #LibraryShelfie Day!

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Wednesday, Jan. 22 is National #LibraryShelfie Day. The New York Public Library's official definition of a library shelfie is, "A photograph that one has taken of oneself at a library, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam, and shared via social media. Library Shelfie Day is celebrated on the fourth Wednesday of January and began in 2014." Book lovers from all over the world are invited to share their library shelfies on social media!

Below are some library shelfies from Jacksonville Public Library staff! Share your own photos this Library Shelfie Day by using the hashtag #LibraryShelfie.
