Yes, there is a library near my house. Normally, I go once a month. I get books to read.

No, I don't have a local library. I used to go to my university library, I read a lot of books in the university library.

Yes I do. I rarely go there, because their books are really old. I offer buy new books.

Near my house there is a library, right next to my daughter's school, when I have some important exams, I visit this place, so I focus better.

Recently I enjoy reading a bookstore like a library. :)

Yes, We have a local Library, but by the pandemic situation it is closed. When I had visit the library, I liked to read the history books
