“What does it mean John”?

It was the first time Jim had joined his elder brother to this building, where he used to go every Saturday. He had seen people coming and going from that building with books in their hands, never knowing what they did there.

“ It’s a place where people come to read, or find information” replied John. It’s called a Library and has thousands of books, papers, videos, comics and lots more.

So, I’ll like it John? Absolutely! Thus began Jim’s love affair with books that remained with him till the day he died.
