    A Monument

    It’s taken me almost thirty three years to realise that libraries can be such wonderful places to visit. And I am visiting them a lot lately, for books of all descriptions, recordings of music, films...More than two thousand years ago ancient China burned their libraries and...

    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.

    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.

    The smell of books, the feel of the pages

    as I flip through them anticipating what is waiting for my eyes to perceive on the next line is intoxicating. From a very young age, I used books as an escape. They transport me to another time, place or existence. I adore books. No kindle for me.

    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...

    Prehistoric Times And Cooking

    In prehistoric times, men and women would live in villages together. Pigs would race around, running in and out of huts. One day, a pig ran into a hut, which caught fire and burned down. Some time later, a hungry man grabbed parts of the roasted animal and ate it. It was the...

    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...

    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...

    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.
