The seriously stylish department store, Selfridges, has opened their very own pop-up library until March 1st. The 15,000-book library set up in the UltraLounge space in the basement area of Selfridges Oxford Street was curated by publishers Faber, Penguin, Tashen and Thames & Hudson. It aims to promote the beauty and power of the written word, and to reinforce the importance of libraries at a time when many libraries are being threatened by cuts and closures. Shopaholics can enjoy handwriting analysis sessions, storytelling workshops, Penguin Classics book clubs, audio books, reading material on iPads and a game of Scrabble on interactive screens. Plenty of celebrities are also joining in the celebration, such as Sophie Dahl and Thandie Newton, sharing their most treasured reads with the public.
