Yes, there is. I didn´t borrow a book, because I consider that it was unnecessary to do that. So I study in house whereby I can´t borrow a book, but I would like to have a book for the school library and do my homework with it.

Hello everyone! Yes, of course there's a big library in our school. I was often writing my homework there, reading books for school presentations, we can also borrow computer and working for class or just spending time with friends there. Our librarian is very nice old woman. Allbody like her, she's very helpful and sometimes reads fairtails to yunger pupils. I've got a library card for our town's library. There I usually borrow my favourite novels and books, such as Harry Potter, all parts of City of bones, Vampire Academy, Blood ties, The ballad of singbirds and snakes, triology Hungry games, triology Divergent, Sky is everywhere, triology Maze runner, Everything everything, Let's it snow, Let's destroy her!, Girl from Mars, ... My favourite authora are Kate McCaffrey, Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins, Agatha Cristie, Tamara Bach, John green, Jandy Nelson, Jany Frey, Jojo Moyes, ... My favourite movie is Titanic. I else like Nerve, Midnight sun, Divergent, Alita the war angel, Now you see me, Fast and furious, With no touch, Vampire Academy, Maze runner, Accoutant, Valerian and city of thousand planets, ... I enjoy watching great movies and reaging excelent books. Sometimes I write a story too. And I like writing songs and melodies. Than, when they'ra allready written, I play melody on my piano or flute and sing the song. Often my twinsis Gwen help me with her guitar. If the song is very good written and composen we use it for song for our band. Me and some of my friends have a band (music group). I'm leader singer or me and Gwen are singing and playing guitars. One we have on the drumms, one on piano, one on cello und one on violin. Thats coooooooooooooool! I very like our band. Best wishes and nice to meet all of you! Rose=)

There is just two libraries in my city and most of the pepole go to it for pens notebooks not for useful books, I think the pepole they buy useful books is 2% of pepole from my city, this is a big problem, and i hope they find a sloution for it.

Yes, there is a library in my school. Although it's not big but it has a little scary. Because next to the library is a big tall tree, so there isn't much light. In the library, the books in on the bookshelf. And some art products of students (like me), the art teacher was taken to the top of the bookshelf. So we can enjoy books and wonderful art products.

Yes, our school has two libraries. One is I central library located in the middle of the school and another one is a small library located near the headmaster's office. The central library has more book than the other library, but I do not like it because it is always crowded and sometimes students make noise. I prefer the library close to the headmaster's office also because it is near to my class and the playground.

Hello dear, I studied in a school where there was a massive library. But the main problem is that, reading out-books in student life is considered to be very bad thing. If any student was found in library during class period, the student would get hard punishment by teachers. I detested these behaviour and hadn't been there ever. Rather, I used to buy a lot of books by gathering my tiffin money. I think the habit of reading books is a blessing. So, everyone should practice this habit regularly. Happily reading about you all. Love, Omi
