Clean Out Your Bookcase Day

Description

On Clean Out Your Bookcase Day, avid readers and bibliophiles focus on getting their bookcases clean and in order. They dust or wipe down their bookcases and make sure all their books are organized on them. Books that are no longer wanted or needed are often donated.

Clean Out Your Bookcase Day, also known as Clean Out Your Bookcases Day, is observed next on Thursday, February 20th, 2020. It has been observed annually on February 20th since 1985.

How to Observe

Celebrate the day by getting your bookcase or bookcases clean and organized. Take all your books off and dust and polish your bookcase. Reflect on if the current way you organize your books makes sense. Should you be organizing them by the author, genre, or another way? Once you've settled on the right way, put all your books back. Chances are that there are a handful of books that you have that weren't properly displayed on your bookcase before, so you'll have to find them a spot now. If there are some books that you no longer want or need, find a place to donate them, such as a charity or resale shop. After all your work, you may find that your books are still piling up, and you need another bookcase. If you are feeling extra motivated, you could build your own. If not, they are easy to find. Then it's finally time to pick out a book to read to reward yourself!
