Of course in my town there is a library but I don't use that. I used to buy a books but nowadays I just borrow them of my friends or to find them in internet sites where I can use my tablet to read them.
Although there are many local libraries available, I rarely visit them, perhaps once every six months.
I don't go to my local library because I read every book in digital format on my laptop, but I think that libraries are really helpful to study because it's calm spaces in which no loud sounds are allowed.
one of the best place I was used frequently is the Library of my uni.
In my city we have new library near where I stay but permanently I prefer to stay and study in home.
there is a small library in my office that some useful books are there. anyone can barrow book for reading in office or at home.
Because I live in the company's local community, we have a library that most of the employees visit to reach a quiet place to continue working or reading books. I usually visit the library to stay focused on reading.
I agree with you, the reading need to focus.
Yes, I have a library near my home owned by my former university. When I took classes at university, I often went there to deepen the lessons.
After completing my college and earning an engineering degree, I no longer needed to go to the library to review my classes and prepare for the exams.
When I went there before I finished college, I always tried to find the same table and chair that I liked, hoping they were free.
