    When I'm in a library I feel safe. I have the same feeling that I have when I'm in bed smothering myself with blankets from the cold winter. Its a comforting feeling that lasts! To me libraries in many ways are portals to the world. In libraries I can read my favourite novel...

    In The Library

    I used to work in a library many years ago so I am quite at home in one. I love the smell of books as much as I love the raw hot passionate smell of sex. I love to feel their pages between my fingers as I caress their folds and the pages tease my mind. I love the stimulating...

    I Do

    My mom took me to the library since I was about 4. Every trip was magical. She also read me bedtime stories. I never stopped going to the library. Then I went to university and I met a new library, a big one. It was so big that it had little corners where only dust collected. I...

    The Library Is My Safe Place

    It's a place of endless new friends & adventures. A place where you can give your mind a break with the power of silence & renew it again with the strength of words. A place where the smell of paper has grown strong & become enticing. A place where you can be relaxed & fully...

    that are lost and don't know what you are doing in life. Go visit the library. And I don't mean the fiction section! Go poke around the different non-fiction areas of the library and you never know where you might end up. I know I have done this a couple times when I was lost...

    Everyday after school I sit in the library

    and shelve books or just chat with the librarian. My dad pokes fun at me telling me I'm the only kid that when school let's out, goes to find more work! I find the library calming and a magical place to be in after a long day of shouting and crowded halls.

    Being in the library

    for me is like parallel play, enjoy each other's company and yet not exactly interacting. It's the feeling of togetherness, belonging to a group at that moment. Yes, I love libraries.
