There was a big library when I studied at national economic university. When I started each exam, I usually went to the library to find a document. and sometimes, when I had free times, I went to the library to read about my object. For a long time, since I have finished study at university. I didn't go to the library any more

We don't have a big library but it is enough for us. In my school we don't like reading books in library. We prefer playing chess,studying some lessons or group projects. But we have our own books in our houses.

Yes,there’s a library in my school. But it’s useless for us because almost all of the books are kept in cupboard.They are locked and nobody can borrow them. All I can do in Library is only reading comic books.That’s why nobody go to school Library thesedays.I have to go to British Council Library and American Center Library to borrow good books. These are my favorite places .There are a thousand of books there. I love spending my time there by searching books to borrow.It’s just a heaven for bookworms.
