The Building of Books
School Library, Richards Library
Shreya, 13There is an eerie silence as you walk in through the automatic doors, ready to trap you inside a captivating world. In the corner of your eye, you spot, an assorted collection of bookshelves filled with colourful and unique spines. The scent of old dusty books lingers around the room. Reaching for one, the hard canvas scratches against your skin. Another, you feel the smoothness of the book covering. You flick idly through the longing pages. Their desire is to be read and you savour every letter. Now you are transported into someone’s story, away from this dimension. It is all in the library.
