Library Scented Candle
From Etsy:

A cozy blend of wood and earthy tones make it easy to imagine yourself curled up with a book or peering through shelves of wonderment in the Oxford Library! This is a completely original scent- I’ve mixed a variety of natural fragrance oils to create it. I have been making candles for years for myself, and decided to list them on etsy.
Oxford Library is made up of several fragrances: Oakmoss & Amber, Sandalwood and hints of tobacco and leather. This is perhaps a “fresher scent,” whereas my other library scent: Dumbledore’s Office, has a woodier aroma. A customer described Oxford Library as smelling like a “Freshly showered Sherlock Holmes.”

Would you buy a CPL Scented Candle?

BiblioTech - San Antonio’s Completely Bookless Public Library
From Gizmodo:


The new book-free library, called “BiblioTech,” is intended to open in the fall and is part of a an entire bookless public library system planned for the entire county of Bexar.
And it’s not “bring your own device” either. The library will actually lend out e-readers (of an unspecified brand) for two weeks at a time. There will also be computers and the like, but no books, and presumably no card catalog either.
