Unfortunately, Nowadays I do not use the library, because all the information taht I need is in the internet, however I really miss those times.

Yea, I have some local libraries in my city,but too far for me.

I learned with this lesson some things.
a) The verb "To borrow". In Mexico, don't' existed one verb for "pedir prestado" we use the words "pedir" and "prestado".
b)The mean of "Lecture theatre".
c) The phrasal verb "To bring back". I have many problems with remembering phrasal verbs.

In sum, it was a great lesson.

Yes I have a local library, I rarely go there, I only go to borrow books


Yes, I have. I go to there every week. I borrow the books

Well, in my country we only have one library which is french cultural centre situated in downtown to enter that library you have to have your library card, that card also allows you to borrow some books within the space of two weeks but i just went there two times because i possess a tablet whihch facilitates me to Google everything i need todays.

Thank you very much, the lesson is very good and userfully

Yes i have one at my university.
I go their twice a week and spend about two hours reading books

Yes, there is a local library where I live, but, it is more for high students. I prefer going to my ex-University, where I can find a lot of engineering and techonology books, and also, sometimes I study there with people who ask me to teach them some math or physics topics. I really like that library because it is very well lit and has a beautiful view outside the windows, but what I don´t like at all is that sometimes the air temperature gets really cold, and I need to wear a jacket because my nose gets runny and have to go out.
