    Many contemporary authors are lobbying the government for a better standard of library. I didn't really come across a good library til going to uni, my libraries in high school and middle school were quite disappointing! I do remember my middle school having a good fantasy collection though! Including the wizard of earthsea!

    College library had the books we needed, but they had this weird rule that you could only borrow textbooks for 2-4 days, it was really frustrating

    My home university's library is rather mediocre in terms of number of volumes (around 1 million), the one of the university I just spent a year abroad at was better in this respect, with something between 2.5 and 3 million volumes.
