At least once a week my mom would take me and my older siblings to the library to get books; especially during the summer for the reading challenges. When my sister started driving she introduced us to the Main Library branch located downtown. The second floor was my favorite as it had lots of creativity books.

The most frequented branch, especially now, is Otranto Regional. We try to go at least once a week and we go so much the librarians greet us by name. There was a new addition where we can now check out ebooks either through hoopla or OverDrive (favorite).

I still get books and am occasionally greeted by past teachers. Looking forward to their second -Con event this summer.

I have been to many different styles of libraries. The new modern and brightly colored ones are okay, but I love old libraries the best. The ones with the old wooden tables and chairs whose surfaces are worn by the use of generations of readers. I love the way they smell and the feeling that washes over me as I walk through the door. In the older libraries there is no need for a sign to remind you to speak quietly, for the spirit of the place brings a feeling of hushed reverence. You are whisked away to a place of peace and refuge, a place where the cares of life are put on hold, a place where you can find a portal to anywhere and anywhen your heart desires.

The company of sooo many books! Peace and quiet. It's a sad thing that libraries should be bustling with people but it has become the only place where you'll find peace.

I am new to the site and forum, but I love going to libraries. My boyfriend and I just found a new library that is about an hour away from us, but it is so worth it. It has so many books to choose from, also it has games, ebooks, and also audiobooks. Also, there is a bookshop inside the library. It is AWESOME!

I do like my ereader for having a lighted book to read at night and not bother my husband, for the ease in getting new books, and for the convenience of carrying it with me. But I long for the library! There is something about it. I wish I had more time in my life for time at the library.

I love the fact that I can access my books at my own disposal time

I don't really love a particular section of the library. I love the atmosphere there. Everything was quiet and people are working or reading on their own. It sort of motivates me to learn and work too.

This point is really huge, and life changing ..
Sometimes (most of the time lately) I have insomnia, and it's way more easy to Search and start reading a new book on my e-reader.
Even though e-books are revolutionary but physical books are another game.

I love my library because; it belongs to me as an asset, it adds to my daily responsibilities and goals, it adds and enhances my private school of thought, I learn something new by connecting with other individuals and bridge spaces and learning new vocabulary is a fact I cherish very much.

My library is a great source of information for me. This valueable asset has always helped me to understand every subject deeply. I use this knowledge gained from the books in the outside world to tackle problems I face everyday. I would like to thank my friend Amit who introduced me to SapnOnline which lets a book lover stay connected to latest Events/Offers/Promotions and Happenings in the books world. Today I have met my dream of having around 100 books of different subjects only because of SapnOnline. I think everyone should develop a habit of reading by updating their library to stay updated and knowledgeable.

My hometown's library used to be in an old, moldy building but recently they built a gorgeous new one, shaped to look like a stack of books--the inside and outside are very instagrammable! It's become a meeting place for people to go have coffee or just hang out, which is exactly what a library should be. And it has amazing views over the city. If you go to Halifax, Canada, you should definitely visit it.
