Happy Library Shelfie Day!

Library Shelfie Day is on the fourth Wednesday in January every year, this year Jan. 22nd. According to National Day Calendar (, “The New York Public Library founded Library Shelfie Day as a way to observe various national holidays by displaying shelfies representing books from each day.” Library Shelf Day is a great day to post a shelfie, a photo of one shelf of your books. Some people arrange their books by color or other artistic way, some post their favorite books whatever works.  

In my case, I picked a shelf in my house that shows some of my favorite writers, my Jane Austen and Shakespeare books, plus some of my mother’s books. She inspired me to be the big reader I am. On the same shelf, we have some of my husband’s art and minerals. He’s the main cheerleader of my writing career. All together, that shelf represents my two great loves, of literature and my family. What could be better than that?

To see other shelfies, search under #LibrarySelflieDay or #shelfie on your favorite social media. Have you taken any shelfies? If so, want to share? 😉  

I love to share my passion for Alaska and its history in my writing for young adults and their grown ups.
