yes i have , there are a several of libraries here arround me 'cause i live in down town of my city , actually i rarely go there 'cause i don't like to . i prefer to read or study at home i think it 's quite calme

Do you have a local library? How often do you go there? What do you do there?

Yes, I hace a lot of libraries in my area, but I don't visit them. I was several times at the university library during my studies. I was giving a classes form Maths to some girl. There was peace and quiet. Nowadays mostly university books are on the Internet in PDF version and somebody who is older has the book what I need for sure.

I love library. In the library I feel myself very comfortable

Yes, in my city there are many libraries, managed by several public bodies (university, municipality, province). At present I don't go there, but I managed a library for eighteen years.

When I had a near library, I went on Saturdays. I stayed there for hours looking at books about geography, geology or medicine atlas

During my studies, i used to go regularly to the local library. it's a good way to learn in quiet place, and also there are your colleagues that can help your with lessons and other information about exams. There are also a lot of books , when you can do research about a specific field. I just can't switch my phone off , that gives me a stranger feeling, i used to check my phones about instead messages and notification, so i broke one of the main rules.

No, I don't have a librery near to my house

Yes, There is a local library near my colony. I have a habit of going this awesome place every Sunday during mid-day fro couple of hours to read and schedule my day. Like saying, Books are the best friends so i like maintain such companionship with them. I like to read motivational books and newspaper which gives me insightful of knowledge about the world, great people around and their achievements. Moreover, I never use my phone in library to avoid distractions.

Hi, no I don’t have anyone near my house, but the main library in Mexico City in near the subway Balderas, but everybody knows this library, today is not necessary to go there because today exists internet.

Yes, we do have a library at the community center. Last time i had visited along with my toddler, they have a children section there were they can draw and colour on the drawing sheets which have printed with pictures of Disney characters. Eg. Princess Elsa, Smurfs etc. I don't regularly visit library. Some times.
