A Modal answer with band 7+
Ok, I'm more kinda person who prefers to study at home only, but every now and then I visit the Town Library. It has 4 floors which are dedicatedly allocated for a specific reason. On the first floor, there are only periodicals, newspapers, scientific journals. The second floor has an eclectic collection of fiction books. The third floor is reserved for non-fiction books, and the Last floor has a digital library and technology-related books.
This wonderful library situated in downtown Sydney, and hardly 8 kilometres from where I live. Even though it is in the centre of city it is very calm and peaceful mainly because they have installed the sound barriers around the library.
Generally, I saw most of the people come here are students and rarely older people can be seen here if they are an avid reader. Once I crash with my former professor, he was doing some research on Computational methods in the healthcare domain.
Overall, I can say that this is a really awesome library for studying and searching, plus librarian out there is a very helpful person always eager to assist in finding books. This is the reason I go there if I have something to read and write.
