Having a public library was important to me because that is where I spent most of my free time as a child. My hometown is Toronto and there are many libraries but the one I went to frequently was the Agincourt Public Library. English was not my first language and the library helped to ease the process of transferring from Chinese to English, there were many children’s books to teenage fictions for me to enjoy while learning. After entering middle school, there were not a lot of time for me to physically go to a library and read books there so this habit of visiting libraries stopped. If you ask me is library still important to me I will still have the same answer because now I use it differently, more as a study area than going there to read books.
