A Place Where You Read and Write

  • My favorite place for the study is the public library in my home town just about ten minutes’ drive from my house.
  • I am a life member of this library and whenever I need to get a few hours of undisturbed study time, I head for this place.
  • I took membership of this library about five years back when I was doing my degree course.
  • Initially, I used to visit the library just to borrow books, mostly novels.
  • But later I began to go there whenever I needed to do an assignment or project or even prepare for my exams.
  • I feel I can accomplish much more there than I can in my home environment.
  • At home, I just study lying on my bed with my laptop propped up on my knees and there are frequent disturbances from family members, phone calls, guests and I have this constant urge to make frequent visits to the kitchen to find something to eat.

  • But in the library study area, there are no such disturbances.
  • The library building itself is large and stately and surrounded by shady trees, far from the hustle and bustle of the town.
  • There are specially designated study rooms which are airy and well ventilated. The entire place is quiet and tranquil. So I create the perfect environment to read or write.
  •  There are desks and chairs and each desk has a power outlet for laptop users and also free Wi-Fi.
  • Printers are also there for scanning, copying, and printing which is really handy.
  • Another reason why I find this place really conducive for studies is that everywhere around you there are people who are pouring over their books or laptops and totally engrossed in their work.
  • And just seeing them makes you motivated to study.
  •  If we need a break we can always get up, walk around, read a magazine or a newspaper or get some coffee from the nearby coffee shop.
  • So I feel this library is a really good place for focused and perfect learning.
