To celebrate reading this summer MCPL invites you to share with us your favorite "shelfies." A shelfie is simply a picture of a bookshelf. Your picture maybe included on the MCPL Twitter and Teen Facebook pages.
- On Twitter, tweet your shelfie picture to @MCPL_Libraries and mention #shelfiesummer.
- On Teen Facebook, send us your shelfie picture in a message to us.
We can't wait to see your shelfies and happy #ShelfieSummer!
