My school has a small library but I don't think it is good. Because there is no librarian and librarian card. So, we can't borrow any book. I usually read books from internet.

Reading books is a good activity, it develops people on a cultural level.

I'm at a secondary school and sadly my school has no actual library really. There's a place where they store all kinds of books, but it's not something for students to go to and take books. I'd love our school to have one though! 3

Hm, I don't know. I'm not often in our school library, because I don't need the books there, because I already read them in other libraries. But we can use the computers any time, for all things, so not only for school works! We can't eat and drink there, but we can use our mobile phones. Have a nice day! ♡Flowerqueen♡

I am studying at University. My school has a big library. It has a large number of books with many different disciplines. Thanks to the school library, students and teachers can find whatever information that they want. Besides, they can find many kinds of books is suitable for the field of study, Moreover, after studying in class, students can do to the library to read favorite books, do exercises or work in group. For me, it is very useful and i think the school library is an indispensable place in the school, especially the university.
