Student: Ah ... sorry, I'm new. Where's the registration office?

Student B: No problem. See the big building over there?

Student: Yes.

Student B: OK, so that's the lecture theatre. Next to that, on the right, is the registration office. And next to that is the library.

Student: I see. Thanks!


Student: Hello?

Librarian: Hello.

Student: Is this the library?

Librarian: Yes, it is. Quiet, please.

Student: Oh, sorry. Thank you.

Librarian: Can I help you?

Student: Er, yes, please. I want to borrow some books. What do I need?

Librarian: You need a library card. Here's the application form. You can take up to six books maximum today.

Student: OK. Six books.

Librarian: Yes. You have two weeks to read the books. Then you bring them back.

Student: And if I'm late?

Librarian: Every day you are late there is a fee of fifty pence.

Student: OK, 50p a day. Er, anything else?

Librarian: Mobile phones must be switched off in the library. You can bring your laptop, but please use headphones to watch videos or listen to music.

the nearest town to us is a college town, and there is a very big and beautiful library there. I used to go there frequently in the summer but now I am to busy. And of course I studied or did my researches there.

Yes I have a local library. I usually go to the local library once a week. I borrow books, or Cd's . I sometimes go the library to read magazines or newspapers . Since there is free internet in the library I also use there to do my research . I usually participate in the book critic meetings in the library in which the writer is invited to talk about his/her book and answer the audience questions. Sometimes I wish I could be a librarian working in the library.
