A library is organized for use and maintained by a public body, an institution, a corporation, or a private individual.The first libraries consisted of archives of the earliest form of writing—the clay tablets in cuneiform script discovered in Sumer, some dating back to 2600 BC. Libraries often provide quiet areas for studying, and they also often offer common areas to facilitate group study and collaboration. In a library books are usually stored on bookcases, or bookshelves, pieces of furniture with horizontal shelves, often in a cabinet.here are three common ways of arranging stationary bookcases: flat against the wall; in stacks or ranges parallel to each other with merely enough space between to allow for the passage of a librarian; or in bays or alcoves, where cases jut out into the room at right angles to the wall-cases. So what are waiting for? Click start and join us in the library for a fun and challenging jigsaw puzzle. Have fun!
