#fairiesatthemuseum: The Book Fairies celebrate International Museum Day

As part of the worldwide celebration around International Museum Day, The Book Fairies had been hiding books in and around museums on the official day on Friday, but also the weekend.

The International Museum Day is an event coordinated by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) that takes place every year around May 18. This event highlights a different theme each year and is at the center of the concerns of the museum community.

The theme for this year is Hyperconnected museums: new approaches, new audiences, because it would be impossible to understand the role of museums without taking into account all the connections they establish. They are an inherent part of their local communities, their cultural landscape and their natural environment. This is why we can not think of a better way to celebrate this day, connecting books with museums.

The Book Fairies had hidden artistic-themed books, including novels, biographies of artists, books that talk about archeology, or even science! Our goal is to connect reading with museums, whatever their typology.
