Students often take advantage of the school library for researching their homework, but there are a number of reasons to visit. For those who are interested in reading books within a budget, the library offers them selections from a wide range of authors. If they want to spend a little time exploring the world, there are generally globes and maps available. Even old-fashioned encyclopedias are still a fixture in many school libraries, so they can roam through the pages for interesting information.

There are many different lures in any library, and those who use them have found they are a wonderful resource. Not all libraries are part of a school building, and many municipalities have their own separate building for use by residents. Finding a particular book is unavailable is not always a bar to reading it, and many modern libraries have formed networks to borrow books for their patrons.
