What do you see in front of you right now? There’re many books. I don’t have a bookshelf so I put them directly on the floor. When I get my salary next month, I’ll buy a new bookshelf.

"There're" is technically correct and you can feel free to use it if you want. However, it's probably one of the least-commonly used contractions in English, both in writing and speaking. And we love contractions. There's not really a good reason for this other than it's just awkward, both to read and to hear. "There're" looks like a jumbled mess to me personally, where you lose the convenience factor of the contraction because the letter combination is so unusual that you end up reading it more than once. I would honestly suggest using "there are" or rephrasing it to something like "there's a stack/bunch of books" because then you turn it into a single unit and can use a contraction that no one will find awkward.
