These days the number of people that really visit libraries has diminished. It is always a pleasure to browse among the books of many authors and select books to read.But in this busy life many try to avoid the trouble of going to the Library. Moreover,we get to read many ebooks online and also can listen to audio books. But there are many of us who do like to visit the library. Do you still visit the library?How often? Image-Pixabay.

@silvermist is it just me, or is there just something about the new book smell that's just good?

I do not visit the library. There is the public library downtown in my city, and it's a beautiful place. It's an older building but is (or was) under a renovation. I liked going there because of the architecture, and quiet more than anything else. Today I prefer to do e-books as I read very fast. There is still an allure with visiting libraries though, and I hope that they remain in existence for years to come.

Did you know that you can get free e books through your library? Ask if your library participates..

@librarygeek1980 I know that they do, and I know that you can. However, the majority of the ebooks I like are from new and upcoming authors, some subject matter that I doubt very seriously would be in my local libraries public domain.

I haven't visited in a couple years. However, my sister goes constantly. She loves to read and can't afford to keep up her expensive "habit". Thus, her love of the library.

I love going to the library. I can't afford to buy books all the time, so I really enjoy visiting my local one. I visit at least once a week to give back the books I've read and to pick up new ones. I'm actually addicted to reading, lol. This one is the one I visit often:

We do not visit the library because it's not at all close to our home, but we browse books in the bookstore inside the mall where we go grocery shopping. We do this every week.

@LadyDuck That is a fantastic buy.Back in the times when I used to buy almost all the best sellers, I bought this and read it.I think it was around the year 2000.Though it is the story of a battered wife,it is a mysterious and exciting book.Read on!

I can imagine it sucks not having one close by, thats why I know that when some people travel, they try to get a hotel or as close to the library as they can where ever they visit.

Oh my! It has been years since I have visited a library. The last library I have visited was in Ireland when we lived there. I used to borrow plenty of books to read. There was no internet by then which keeps me away from visiting a library nowadays.

The Computer Age or Cyber Age has practically affect almost every aspect of our life---decreasing number of people going to the library among other things. The root word of the term library comes from the Latin word "liber" meaning "book". It's funny thing that when you go nowadays to the public library there are lots of free computer inside. Instead of reading books some of the people are just hooked on the computer. I go to the public library every month 'cause I usually borrows 5 or 6 books and return back the same after I'm done with them time permitting. It's a month cycle for me or even earlier to visit the library.
