    I don't read as much

    as I used too, I used to read a book a day. But I've only slowed down to a book a week

    No matter where I am

    The Best Place To Learn And Feel At Peace At The Same Time!

    Just want to say that there's so much available in my town library. So, for example, you can borrow CDs or DVDs on Monday,  read all the interesting magazines on Tuesday,  Go on line there maybe on Wednesday, sign out a few books on Thursday and attend a movie in the library...

    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?

    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 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...

    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...

    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:)

    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...

    He stood transfixed as he saw more of the

    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.

    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?

    but I love the library itself nearly as much even just being there it's cosy and quiet and people are helpful (usually)

    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 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...

    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.

    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 the library, I think

    that there is something extremely satisfying when I find a good book to get lost in. It usually doesn't take much for me to get lost in a book. And if I do get lost in one, that usually means I get lost in a while world of mental pictures of how I think the characters look and...
