I Love the Library

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 17,656 People

    I love libraries. I have a library

    that is less than 5 minutes from my house. When I go I can spend hours in there just looking around. I like the smell of new books and it's always quiet so I can read in peace.

    Although my parents were not considered

    "educated", they made sure that I had a library card. Every week I would check ten books to read. Whenever I entered the library, I felt at peace. The library was my portal to other worlds, worlds away from South Los Angeles. If I could never go to Paris and eat delicious...

    I was once so engrossed in a book I was reading,

    I lost track of time and if it wasn't for the lights being turned off, I would have been stuck at the library all night.. Not that I would mind of-course.

    I love the library because it feels like home

    to me. It's where I lose myself to books and rethink beyond what's visible.

    I love library especially the old one.

    Never tired looking at the view of thousands well arranged books, the smell of old books and the silent. Constantly try to find the oldest book in the library. Feels like uncovering secret of 'The hidden Wisdom'....

    I love reading, during my spare time,

    all the chances I get to read. Reading is my hobby I feel safe when I read. I don't understand why people think I'm weird, I'm just me honestly do I have to stop being myself just to make you stop bothering me? What happen to not judging? Honestly why....?

    For about the past year,

    it has become an "every Saturday morning" thing for me. There is a group of regulars who wait outside the door before it opens. Wandering around and picking up random books to check out has resulted in me reading so many things that I would not otherwise have know I needed...

    I wish I could spend my whole at the library

    instead of going to school and learn from the book.

    When i was a child and growing up,

    one would always find me in one of the local libraries. This was especially true during the summer months when school was out of session. I have a great fond of reading many different types of books. I was very good in school and i attribute that to my reading skills. I am...

    A place filled with history,

    knowledge, magic, creativity, wisdom and silliness…the library has it all.

    One of my favourite places in the world.

    I love going through bookshelves, finding new things to read, then finding a comfy corner to sit in and forget about everything.

    I used to not care for it

    as much (my mom had a huge thing about germs) but now as an adult I find the library is great. I'm super lucky to live close to a few that are fairly well-stocked and run. It probably helps that while I really want physical books to survive, I don't actually want to buy books...

    Ever since I've been a little boy,

    my mother always took me to the library. Ah, what happy times. The musty smell of old books, the old librarian ladies who were so friendly, the comfy chairs to curl up in. Our library had a beautiful window that looked out on a massive tree. It was a rather picturesque place...

    I love that one corner of the Library

    that is completely empty and surrounded by books. Sometimes I'm lucky enough to find one of these corners with an arm chair, or even a table. But most of the time I just sit on the floor and read, or write poetry. I like to flip open a page of a random book and try to make a...

    A library is a journey of exploration.

    The wide ocean of words written to wander the wiles of men. The long road of research written to reveal the realities of men.

    went to the library the other day

    and felt like a kid in a candy store. I got a bunch of books and sat on the floor with all the books all over. I felt so peaceful.

    Don't you just want to curl up in one corner

    and get lost in make-believe worlds of magic and happiness forever and ever? Or is it just me?

    I'm at home in a library.

    I'm not expected to talk to anyone. no one asks me why I'm being so quiet. I'm not afraid, not worried, because somewhere in one of those books is the answer.

    One of the first memories I have is my mom

    taking me into the local library and into the children's corner. I remember it being a tiny little room through a doorway and down a few steps. It felt like a magic world of it's own and I immediately pulled out all the Dr. Suess books and proceeded to begin expanding my mind...

    Naturally, people tend to think the library is

    simply a place for books and media. But as I learned (and have always believed) in one of my school library media classes, the library is a place where we exchange ideas and thoughts, through books, computers, magazines, or person-to-person. It's also one of the few place where...

    I do love libraries and believe

    that any amount of funding is necessary to make sure they keep running smoothly. When I was a little boy the library was my release even today as an adult it's one my my favorite places to be thousands upon thousands of books, fiction and nonfiction, graphic novels, plays...

    I go to the library every other week

    and I always get at least 5 books. I guess you could say that I just love to read.

    I'm a writer, and I want to make

    that my career, and I'm a book junkie too. Sometimes I'll spend the whole day at my public library writing and reading, and have a blast.

    There is a sense of peace

    that I feel every time I enter a library. I was assaulted in front of a library but never had ill feelings towards libraries. I love the smell of books.

    My mom is the librarian at the school

    so everyday before and after class I spent around an hour in that library. Libraries make me feel relaxed and are about the only place I can actually think straight:)

    There's just something about the silence in the

    air that's not awkward or empty. I also love reading it's amazing how black words on white paper can take you places.

    I love going to the library.

    I go all the time they say Knowledge is Power well In order to Gain Knowledge you need to be able to read. So If Knowledge is Power than Reading is the Tool To Gain Knowledge.

    I love the smell of old books,

    the serene place, and the way I feel whenever I'm in the library. Busy lives and other more important priorities take me away from the opportunity to visit.
