Give me a budget and I'll make some suggestions. My first would be make sure you've got them on decent stands, part filled with sand and out from the wall. I had a pair of these many years ago. They need proper siting and positioning to sound their best. Good budget speakers, but treat them with some love to get the best out of em.

Any amp will be fine. Choose one with the highest power that you can afford.
thank you.

Thank you. Budjet may be around 1000 usd. I am not sure what do you meen by "part filled with sand"? I must use them on a bookshelf.....with many books around it.
What's your budget? How many speakers have you got?
Thank you. I have only two speakers - budjet may be max 1000 usd.

unfortunately named perhaps but bookshelf speakers are not best used actually on a bookshelf.
whatever you choose to drive them with isn't going to get the best out of them, also, as we don't know where you live we have little idea as to what is available for your budget but I would suggest a Rotel amplifier is a good place to start.
