Who: Used by people of many different backgrounds. Prominently recognized by the wealthy, educated peoples.

Where: In private spaces such as homes/religious institutions. Public spaces like the library or schools.

When: No specific time or reason for having a bookshelf. Usually just grows as time passes, but sometimes deliberately purchased with reason to have a personal library.

Why: Used to hold books/other knick-knacks, for furnishing purposes, displaying, exhibiting, storing. Also used to show off level of class or education.
