I Love the Library

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 14,092 People

    I love this place so much,

    it's sort of like my third home or something.. Yesterday, today and tomorrow, my school's holding a Class Meeting. For 3 days. You know, those sport competitions between classes? Yeah. The first day, I spent about 3 and a half hours in the library, reading the "Harry Potter: The...

    No matter where I am

    or what i'm doing there Libraries are always my favorite places to be. In houses Libraries are always my favorite room. There's something about them, not just the fact that there are words written by thousands of different people, and how each word in every book has a history...

    He stood transfixed as he saw more of the

    smooth skin appear under my skirt. The ladder wobbled as I leaned further for a book on the top shelf. He never stopped imagining touching me even as he found himself making his way through the maze of tables to my side. I realized I was falling and softly shrieked. My arms...

    It's great. Only trouble is the town

    where I live public works hasn't bothered to fix the air conditioning in the kids section where I work. Everywhere else is cold.

    It is a great place to spend time.

    It is quite and you can get work done and not be bothered. You can also find some great books to read. They have free movies to rent, free WiFi and free books so what is not to love?

    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.

    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...

    and movies to watch. I like to go to the downtown library and hang out there and read my books.

    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.

    I wish I could disappear in to a good book

    and not come out again. I have always wanted to get all the stories out of my head in to words on a screen and on paper. I lost confidence in my ability to write a long time ago. I wish I could find it again but over the years I'm losing more than I'm gaining in that fight...

    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.

    It's sheer bliss! walking into a place housing

    hundreds of thousands of stories and world's; each book with the ability to turn you into a captain of a spaceship or a poor begger sizing up a big job.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    My mom is the librarian at the school
