As many of you may know, Minecraft is an open-world construction video game originally created by the Swede Markus Persson and later developed by his company, Mojang Studios. It was publicly released on 17 May 2009, after several changes it was released in its full version on 18 November 2011.

In this article we’ll tell you what the Minecraft Stand is, how to make one and how to use it. Let’s get to it!

What is the Minecraft Stand

The Lectern is used to store books for multiple players to read in multiplayer mode. It is a block used for reading books and serves as a workbench for the villager librarian, added in the Village & Pillage update.

Thanks to the lectern, several players can now read a book on the lectern at the same time, so that infinite copies are no longer needed. In addition, it generates a redstone signal that varies according to the number of pages turned while reading.

How to find a Minecraft Bookstand

Although you can craft a Lectern, it is not the only way to get one, you can also find one. To do this you just need to find a village spawned after update 1.14 and locate a library. If the village has it, it will probably have a lectern as well.

This is definitely the quickest way if you are near a village, as the crafting process can be a bit more tedious. If you are unlucky or prefer to do it yourself, then move on to the next point.

Crafting a Lectern in Minecraft

Like many other items, the lectern can be crafted on the crafting table, but to do so you will need to get four wooden slabs and a shelf. In the case of the slabs there is no major complication, you can make them with 3 wooden blocks in a row and you will get 6 slabs.

On the other hand, the process to make the shelf is a bit more complicated and time consuming. You could obtain the shelf directly by using a tool with the “silk touch” enchantment and mining it from a library. Otherwise all you would get would be the three books used in its crafting.
