    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...

    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.

    I love it so much I used to sleep in it,

    under the table, with textbooks as my pillows, in college. It's often quiet, warm and just so sleep-inducing. Who wouldn't love it?

    Yes I do love library!

    But now a days the visit on the library is rare! Because of the computer gadget that's accessible in your hands in your home in your bed even your out in the woods of jungle as long as there's a signal! And how many of you visit very often?

    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...

    I imagine life and world just like J.

    L.Borges once did, as a huge library where everything is in all these books, you just need to find it, read and make it true :-) I would love to live in a huge library, to have books all around me :-)

    The smell, the sounds,

    I love reading and I love our local library.

    At least once a week I go along and browse the bookshelves. I love exploring the different subject areas and discovering new titles. At any one time I'll have at least 2 or 3 different books on loan, and in this way I've learned so many things about subjects I would never...

    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...

    Anything With Books- I Love!

    I have always loved anywhere that has a lot of books, be it the library or a bookstore. When I was little, I used to spend hours upon hours in our local library or the school's library. Some of the best memories I have as a child are sitting in a bean bag chair with a bunch of...

    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:)

    Judi stormed up to the front desk of the library

    and said, "I have a complaint!" "Yes, ma'am?" "I borrowed a book last week and it was horrible!" "What was wrong with it?" "It had way too many characters and there was no plot whatsoever!" The librarian nodded and said, "Ah. So you must be the person who took our...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
