Animal Advocacy Pop-Up Library

The above is the gorgeous profile picture of HART: Hornby Animal Rights Team, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to animal advocacy and education, on Hornby Island, British Columbia, Canada.

On Friday March 30th, just two days from now, HART will be holding their first event – a community vegan potluck at New Horizons.

In addition to the vegan feast and short film, HART’s first event will also launch their animal advocacy pop-up library.  The library books will be on display for browsing and borrowing, and people will have the opportunity to become library members.

The pop-up library is a brilliant idea! 😀

They are planning to cycle from place to place with a trailer full of wonderful animal-friendly books, fiction and non-fiction, for children and adults, and be the most eco-friendly mobile library you can imagine.  You can read their books at the event or take them home and return them later 🙂

Quite a few of our books are among the HART Animal Advocacy collection, I’m very excited to tell you, so if you’re in the area, take the opportunity to get over there and borrow something, and make some new friends while you’re at it 🙂

If you’re not in the area, as most of us aren’t unfortunately, why not think about setting up your own Animal Advocacy Pop-Up Library in your community?  It’s such a brilliant idea don’t you think?  You can contact HART via their website or email them at hornbyhart@gmail.com for more info about how they’re doing it.

Free and Easy

Going to the library is fun.  Browsing the books, choosing something you like and taking it home for weeks at a time.  For nothing.  This is something to be truly appreciated and not taken for granted.

If we don’t use it, we might lose it 😮

If you live in the sticks like us, miles from the nearest library building, there might be a mobile library that visits your area.  They usually come by every couple of weeks.  Contact your local county council to find out where and when your mobile library is coming next 🙂
