    Library Is The Best Classroom

    I have always loved libraries. For me, I think the best part is having everything available. This book looks interesting, I think I'll read it. Five page in, you find out it's really not so worthy of your time. Put it down, find another book. No one is going to glare at you...

    No Books But Peace And Quiet

    I love the feel and smell of my local library, it's not very well big, there are very few books but it's great for people watching and the staff who work there are very unstereotypical librarians. At least its quiet.

    Nothing Bad Can Happen To You In A Library...

    I love how i feel safe hidden in the restricted section, which by the way still makes me feel all grown up and giddy when i pass through the door. I love sitting on the ground leaning against a shelf and reading whatever book happens to be in front of me. I love that nobody comes...

    Happy Place

    It's definitely my happy place. Time slows down when I'm in a library, probably because of the relatively quiet environment(most of the time). There's a book on e v e r y subject, unfortunately the only time I'd read something that didn't belong to a genre I liked, was when I...

    There is a seductiveness about the quiet of a

    library. The hushing and whispering between, you and the pages of a book. The dust in the air, the glue that binds, the library is like a lover you take on that knows how to keep a really good secret. One who whispers their story to you like the best story ever told, that...

    Libraries + Me = True Love

    There is something beautiful about libraries. I try to find old ones with a rich history to read in. Not only do they offer great opportunities but I am a bookworm so I practically live in my local library and hold at least 3 library cards for different locations. I plan to...

    Refuge And Escape

    Books have always been my hiding place. The escape from unhappy reality that has, at times, been essential to keep me going. As a child the library was my refuge from the bullies who sometimes followed me home, I would stay until closing time every day. Dreaded Wednesdays when it...

    My Sanctuary

    I don't know what it is about libraries, but I absolutely adore them. All those books...all that quietness...all that knowledge about almost everything--I totally love it. It's like a sanctuary for me. I generally have to deal with a lot of issues at my job, but the library is...

    Beautiful Sanctuaries

    Oh I do just love libraries. (book stores too, actually, any gathering of like 20 books or more will do...) But there is just something special about libraries. I love the boundless opportunities for knowledge and the many different people and the books and the pure purpose of...

    One reason why I love libraries is

    that no one is talking. Everyone is in their own little book or study world. There's so much noise and talking in the world. Libraries are not only for renting books etc., they are retreats and mini vacations. In a library you can let your guard down, you can chuckle reading...
