things i love about the library

It’s a great place to study, read and work on my school stuff. And, it has a wonderful atmosphere and amazing librarians who can help you answer any questions you may have.

The Painswick branch is close to my house so I’m able to go there almost every day. I like to read mostly what I refer to as “chapter” books. There aren’t any pictures or illustrations so you get to imagine what’s happening throughout the book and create your own pictures.
