Black and white photo challenge on Twitter

Have you noticed the black and white photo challenge for libraries that has been taking Twitter by storm? It appears to have started in America, as far as my research goes, and has come over to England and spread rapidly through the Cambridge University libraries.

The Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide library was challenged by the Divinity Faculty library, which was challenged by the Haddon library, which was challenged by Trinity library, which was challenged by Christ’s library, which was challenged by both Queens’ library and the ARU library, and so it goes on…

The idea is to post a black and white photo of library life each working day for seven days, challenging a new library each day. No people. No explanations. Just library life as we know it. You can see our response to the challenge on Twitter. Here are the gallery of photos now turned into colour:
