California is a massive state and boasts an impressive library system to match its impressive scale. California boasts over 1200 libraries that have issued well over 21 million library cards. Libraries are a place to get books, access the internet, learn new skills, or simply a safe place to hang out.

Going viral on TikTok is a California native that’s showcasing the joys and importance of libraries, not just to California but the United States as a whole. Mychal Threets, known on TikTok as @mychal3t, is a supervising librarian at Solano County Library. His videos are brimming with positivity and his message has greatly resonated with a wide audience as in recent months he’s exploded on TikTok. He’s reached over 197,000 followers and 6.4 million likes, with many of the storytime videos earning several million views.

TikTok and its many subcommunities have led to many things going viral, such as Mychal Threets.

Perhaps the most captivating aspect of Threets' content is his storytime videos. Here, he shares tales of the "library kids" and "library adults" he encounters at the Fairfield Civic Center Library, bringing to life the everyday magic of the library. Threets clearly approaches his role as a librarian and these interactions with empathy and care, making every person who walks through those library doors feel welcome. These stories both entertain and underline the importance of libraries as community hubs for people of all ages.

Even one look at Threets’ account is inspiring and makes you want to go to the library. Nowadays, libraries are even better with a general expansion of their digital capabilities. More and more libraries are offering extensive ebook and audiobook offerings through services like Libby. There are even programs, like the ones in Solano County Library, where you can check out video games, parking passes, or even musical instruments. That’s not to even mention the community-building aspects like book clubs and reading challenges.

Places like The Huntington Library and its surrounding areas are major destinations in their cities.

Mychal Threets' rise on TikTok is a testament to the evolving role of librarians in the digital age. He bridges the gap between the traditional reverence for books and the dynamic world of social media. For travelers and culture enthusiasts visiting one of the many libraries in California can be a great chance to see the city. Libraries like the Los Angeles Central Library or The Huntington Library boast impressive book collections and surrounding architecture. California is lucky to have a librarian like Threets rising on social media and spreading good ol’ Californian positivity.
