Zum Tag der Bibliotheken am 24. Oktober ist die Max Planck Gesellschaft mit der Social Media Aktion #meandmylibrary auf Facebook, Twitter und Instagram präsent, um die MPG-Bibliotheken mit ihren gedruckten und digitale Sammlungen ins Bild zu rücken, aber auch die Menschen, die in diesen Bibliotheken arbeiten und forschen. Auch auf der MPG-Webseite wird das Thema aufgegriffen.
