  1. I VISIT THE LIBRARY DAILY, AND IT HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY STUFF, THE ONLY THING THAT WIL MAKE IT PERFECT WOULD BE SILENCE, BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE USE TO TALK A LOT, AND FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT WANTS TO BE IN SILENCE READING A BOOK OR AN ARTICLE IS COMPLICATED, AND IN THE ROOMS IS THE SAME BECAUSE THE ARE NOT SOUND PROOF, BUT I UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT IN THE LIBRARY PEOPLE USUALLY TALKS IN THE PHONE, GOSSIP, AND DISCUSS TOPICS LIKE THEY WERE ALONE, AND FOR PEOPLE WHO REALLY WANTS A SILENT SPOT IIS VERY DIFFICULT TO CONCENTRATE.

    I WOULD LIKE TO IMPROVE THAT FOR ALL THE STUDENTS, I THINK IM NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO FEELS THIS WAY.
