One thing that I really love about my local library is the amount of different sections of books there are to choose from . The librarian is there to help you in any way possible.

I love the librarians at my local library. They make it worthwhile to go in and talk to them and they always have great recommendations.

I have a handful of libraries! My favorite one, though has such a huge selection of books, and I've never left there empty-handed. Plus, they have a cool service where they can transfer books from all over the state. That definitely opens up the options for some good reads!

I adore libraries. I can spend hours in them just looking at all the books. Unfortunately I end up bringing home a ton (literally) of books. The good thing about my library is that I can order the books on-line and then just run in and pick them up. I can also get online Hoopla books through them. :)

I love the shock it causes my guests when they come over :lol2: I always tell my friends I have a LOT of books, but it takes them seeing to believe it. It takes up two rooms of my house and I'm sure it'll continue to grow. I plan on it. :D

I love the feeling of being in a library. Maybe it harkens back to childhood in some way, and going in to the library then, but I love the smell, the ambiance, and the sheer magic of so much story and information just at my fingertips.
I feel the same! They've updated it quite a bit, but this still holds true. The atmosphere is like no other. I remember when I was younger, downstairs was/is the kids area and they always had a pet guinea pig. So I went a few years ago to see, and still do the same. I like when things change, but also stay the same. They have great events for everyone. Gosh, and the outside of the building is so lovely.

I love our Museum library. It's big and old and the smell of so many books in one place is heavenly. Sometimes I do go sit at the library to enjoy the quiet and take in the soothing scent of the numerous volumes of great works, both past and present.
