Happy Library Lovers’ Month!

Did you know that the first library in the world dates back to 2600BC and that its “books” were actually clay tablets?

The history of libraries is vast and quite eventful, which is one of the reasons why we should celebrate them as wonderful sources of knowledge! The idea of creating a place where we can learn from others and share the wonderful gift of reading and learning has prevailed through countless obstacles, including fires, wars and conflict.

Writing found on stone

To commemorate libraries past and present all over the world, we celebrate Library Lovers’ Month every February!

Fun fact: Did you know that Library Lovers’ Day is also on the 14th of February?! 💕

Here at Night Zookeeper, we love that libraries all over the world offer everyone an opportunity to experience the joy of learning something new, or the feeling of pure happiness when you’re able to find the exact book you were looking for. However there are many other reasons why we are library lovers:

  1. Libraries are fair
  2. Libraries offer an escape
  3. Libraries provide a safe place to store historical artefacts
  4. Libraries are great for socialising
  5. Libraries are wonderful places
