National Library Shelfie Day

Library Shelfie Day: When A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Library Shelfie Day was founded by the New York Public Library in 2014 and takes place on the fourth Wednesday in January. It is a chance for book lovers everywhere to share their love of reading with others. All you have to do is simply snap a selfie in front of a bookshelf. We asked the staff at Jacksonville Public Library to share their library shelfies with us and boy oh boy the Library staff showed up.

National #LibraryShelfie Day!

Book lovers from all over the world are invited to share their library shelfies on social media!
