Among the guests of Le Selvole a very beautiful practice started: the creation of a “small spontaneous library”. No formalities or regulations, but simply the spontaneity of the reading-loving guests, allowed some books to be left in some corners and shelves of the apartments, as a sign of sociability, entirely entrusted to the care and responsibility of the visitors. The texts are in various languages and anyone can read during their stay the books he finds in his own language or donate a book leaving him freely in the apartment. In this way the collection of books will always be in continuous evolution and will be able to express the diversity and interests of those who will be guests of Le Selvole.
A real small library is still present in the common room available to all, containing mainly publications of the Tuscany Region and Local Authorities relating to rurality, nature and tourism. There are also books for children, about animals, the countryside and outdoor life.
