I LOVE libraries - it's like heaven on earth for me. I love the smell of books, which is probably a bit weird, but there it is. I don't go often, though...or ever, actually. I don't like borrowing books, because then I have to read them within a certain time period and return them on time - or I get a late fee! Usually by the time I remember to read and return a book, I could have just owned the stupid thing with all the late fees I'm paying! I'd much rather own the book...many many books, actually. I want my OWN library!

Being the indecisive and easily distracted person that I am, I often spend hours at libraries, especially during my truant days. I'm somewhat hesitant to borrow books from the library; I prefer to just preview & buy them at barnes & noble. I hate library fines, which to my absent-minded self are almost inevitable.

I often go to the library. As a teacher, I need a lot of books that I can use when preparing my lectures. Since most of the books I use are expensive in the bookstores, I would rather borrow from the library. I don't remember a time that I borrowed pocketbooks or novels from the library. If there are books that I would like to keep as part of my collections, I would buy it from the bookstore.

no i don't. not because i don't like to read. i love to read. it's just that at some libraries the books are old and not updated. sometimes for the newly released books you have to wait for weeks cause somebody else had borrowed it first. if that's the case i'd rather buy my own book or borrow from my friends and family. I like investing my money in books.

I haven't gone to the library in a long time becase I hae he internet and can find almost eveything I want on there. When I want a book I usually want it adly enough to want to buy it. The library is also a little far from a us stop for me to walk. I it was better located I think I might use it more.

I always go to library to read in the reading room and borrow a lot of books. I like library very much for it is quiet atmosphere that make me feel calm and comfortable. Many students go to library to study, especially when the exams are coming. The effect of studing in the library is very good. At the same time, borrowing book can save money.

I rarely go to the library. Somehow I like to buy the books I read. Also our library has a very limited selection in English (I live in Finland) and I dont speak finnish so... But this inspires me to go and have another look. they do have a huge selection of handicraft books. those i dont buy so easily because they are expensive and never ocntain too much stuff that you can use.

Before I hated the Library, it's the most boring place for me... but when I started to join some fiends on their daily trip to our library, I found out that it is actually like, Wow... It's nice to read books and explore new things... I'm now considering going to the library a hobby... It actually helped me a lot too... Hope you'll try to visit the library and try to develop a liking for it...
