This is the discussion for today,
Suggested by Barbara:
I saw that National Library week is coming up in April, and that led to some questions. How often do you use your public library and how do you use it? Has the coffeehouse/bookstore replaced the library? Did you go to the library as a child? Do you have any particular memories of the library? Do you like sleek, modern, active libraries or the older, darker, quiet, cozy libraries?
My answer is here,
I usually visit the library every week, after my shopping trip a good look round the library is a treat. The largest nearby town has a coffeehouse/bookstore , and I do frequent that too , but as the library is the nearer I prefer it.
I used the school library as a child , there wasn't a council one where I lived.The building is not foremost in my mind when visiting as the books are the thing but after saying that I prefer older buildings in general I feel they have more character.
