1 Most towns and cities have a library.
2 Libraries are available to everyone.
3 People think that libraries are just for books.
4 They are wrong.
5 In modern libraries, you can borrow many things.
6 Books, of course, are what people expected to find in libraries.
7 Did you know, however, that you can also borrow music?
8 Yes, many libraries will lend CDs and records.
9 Some libraries will also lend computer programs.
10 Do you know why we have libraries?
11 It is to enable those who can not afford to buy books etc. to have access to them.
12 However, they are not just used by poor people.
13 All kinds of people use them, from children to professors, poor to rich.
14 It would be almost impossible for you or me to collect so many books and CDs.
15 So libraries can be said to be very useful places
