We know that internet, blogs and social networks gave or maintained a general taste for writing and creation, and gave the world of books a second youth by putting self-publishing at everyone’s reach.
Books and writing are part of the daily life for many of us, and the internet pays them tribute!
What the shelf?
On Instagram, we find under the hashtag #shelfie a whole lot of inspiring photos featuring shelves and libraries. The word “shelfie” itself sets the tone by combining the words “shelf” with the word “selfie” (the famous self-portraits photographed in the 21st century, for those sleeping at the bottom).
Many of the photos feature furnitures arranged like they’re almost taken straight out of an IKEA magazine; But, and this is what interests us here, we can also find books!
#Shelfie indeed is the occasion to make your personal library a star while the hashtag lasts, and to share your reading taste or your storage foibles to your friends and followers… Or even to discover what composes the tastes of others and how people organizes and surrounds one’s readings!
No boasting of elitist readings or endless rows of books here (even if we recognize that a full library is always pretty to picture 😉 ), only the joy of seeing beautiful book-related photos and starting exchanging about your favorite books!
After all, the contents of a library are often indicative of the personality of its owner(s): It is with this idea that the newspaper The Guardian launched the concept of the Shelfie in December 2013.
More than 820 000 publications are now classified under the hashtag #shelfie and more are coming everyday, so it’s always time to get involved and show what you have and love!
In France, the media library of Poitiers (named “Médiathèque François Mitterrand” as an hommage to one of France’s former Presidents, said to be fond of arts and culture), has found a great solution to bring company and entertainment to the elderly, handicapped or isolated people: Books portage!
Poitiers’ inhabitants are thus given the possibility of being delivered of their books for free, with all the books directly coming from the collections of the media library.
The delivery is “included” in the price of their annual subscription to the library (costing from €6 to €16), thus offering an invaluable service without any extra cost. The persons that are delivered are visited by the Media Library’s staff and can exchange a few words as well as their books, which they give back (of course;)) while borrowing again.
Every 24 days, a new arrival of audiobooks arrives at the tables of the beneficiaries and allows them, thanks to the quantity and diversity of content available, to find their happiness for several years!
The multimedia library makes nearly 2,300 texts available to read and has also signed a partnership with the Valentin Haüy association (located in Paris) which allows visually impaired subscribers to obtain access to an additional fund of 200 texts engraved in “Daisy” format. Subscribers can also freely download 20,000 titles from the Éole online library.
