Follow Me to the Library
When was the last time you visited a book store or bought a book for the mere pleasure of reading it? What was the name of the last novel you read? Or the name of the author of the last best story you plunged into? Indeed, you are likely to spend more time using electronics or social media even if you do read. Isn’t it so?
How do you like the sound of exploring a new world, and discovering insights to life and the world or perhaps taking a wild adventure beyond your imagination? Well, the pleasure of reading provides exactly that and much more. People may have forgotten the wonderful experience of reading but there are few book fanatics out there, taking reading to a new level, reaching out to you in the most absurdly attention-grabbing ways possible just so that you consider reading a book again.reading books
Project inspired by the Instagram series “Follow me”
The “follow me to the library” expression is based on libraries that can be accessed by a single Daly City Public card. The idea was inspired by the famous Instagram series “Follow me” where a photographer is being led by his girlfriend to different beautiful destinations around the world. Likewise, the “follow me to the library” project also portrays a member leading someone to a library that can be accessed by the same card. In a deeper level, the artist creates awareness as well as promotes the library card.
Free Books Library in a Tank
This is a very interesting notion expressed by a curious artist in which he fills a tank like machine with books. He wants to emphasis the positive effect of books by basing on the extent of impact the tanks had on human lives in the past. The artist casually drives around the street and offers book to passersby for free.
Hot Dudes Reading
This idea was first initiated when someone noticed how a man’s external look is intensified when he starts reading a book. This is not a childish attempt to show a temporary infatuation with a stranger but rather to let others know that intellect is more attractive than handsome features.
A 21 year old book worm called Jakub Pavlovsky took an initiative on reaching into the heart of reading. He based his project on making time for reading and called it “Book Calling” His pictures have an aesthetic appeal where he is lost in reading in an area where the environment seems to pivot around his pose.
Stories in the Sky
This project is very thought-provoking and powerfully influencing. On the occasion of the International Book day kites are used to encourage the knowledge of kids from the underprivileged communities in Santa Marta Community in Rio Je Janeiro. The NGO Pro-Livro carries out this breathtaking campaign by flying 500 kites in the sky. The kites are printed with tales from famous Brazilian writers and when the kites fall during the traditional kite fight, a kid catches it to read the tale and pass it along to the other kids!
The people behind these projects have gone out of their ways to send a message. “Read. Reading is a beautiful experience. It is a pathway to experiencing a meaningful life.”
Don’t you want a meaningful life?
We know we do. So, we are going to the library to pick up a book to read.
The question is, will you follow us to the library?
