But, for those who'd rather curl up with a book and a steaming mug of coffee, we made sure to post a few eLibrary options for you on Instagram this week, including one post about Atlanta Magazine and their article on the MARTA Army. You can read Atlanta Magazine or dozens of others on Zinio, free with your library card and without leaving the comfort of your couch.
In last week's #ShelfLife recap, we asked you to tell us what you're reading for a chance for your book to be shared on our Instagram feed. Our friends at CummingLocal.com responded with a #shelfie of epic proportions with The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah on top of the to-be-read pile. We confess to loving that book, too, and if you'd like to check it out, you'll find versions in print, Large Type, eBook, CD Audiobook, and eAudiobook in our collection.
So, who's next? Leave a comment here or tag @forsythpubliclibrary on Instagram for a chance to have the book you're reading featured on our #ShelfLife feed next week.

Rainy days and Mondays got you feeling down? Check out the latest @atlantamagazine on @zinio from FCPL, without leaving the couch (or the office, for those of us not on Spring Break). . The Connector section of the April issue has an informative article on the MARTA Army of volunteers. You might even see a few volunteers – or at least the results of their work - if you’ll be taking MARTA to avoid the I-85 collapse. . #ShelfLife #magazinemonday #libraryinmyhand #i85bridgecollapse #atlanta #librariesofinstagram
