If you’re the proud owner of a home library—as in, a room dedicated solely to the filing, display, and reading of books—you’re rare. Most of us will never have that grand room that the Beast unveiled to Belle in Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, which has caused unreasonable expectations in young girls since 1991 and created a next-to-impossible standard for men to live up to.
Nevertheless, why can’t you have a home library? Dedicate some countertops to artistically arranged stacks of books, buy a few bookshelves, and hide the rest under your bed. There are plenty of creative solutions, because necessity is the mother of invention. But here’s the problem, and it’s a big one: As any true booklover knows, you can never have too many books. That new James Patterson thriller—you have to have it! A stable of classics from Tolstoy to Austen, just in case! And those tatty old picture books you loved since childhood are being saved for the grandkids…
There may be “no such thing” as too many books. But due to the hard science of physics as applied to the house you live in, there may be such a thing as “absolutely no more room for more books”!
That’s where a unit at STORBOX comes in. Keep your “re-reads” close at home, but for all the rest of your textbooks, magazines, or flea market grabs you may get around to reading some day? Keep them safe from scuffing, dust, and household accidents in a clean, organized, and secure area. In fact, you can turn your STORBOX unit into that private library—all yours. There are even climate controlled spaces available for the rare and valuable books.
As Thomas Jefferson wrote, “I cannot live without books.” Even in this increasingly digital age, few of us can, either. Having a storage unit can definitely help with “book control” and free up living space, while making you the owner of your own library.
