Read the given text carefully and answer the questions 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.


A library is a collection of books. But it is not a book-shop. It does not sell books. It is a center of learning. In the past, people had to go to a teacher to learn from him. But how easy and cheap it is to get knowledge and wisdom today! Today you can find libraries almost everywhere. These libraries are of two kinds–private and public. A private or personal library has books of the choice of only one person. So, it is not useful to all. But public libraries are meant for all. They have books to suit different tastes. Our schools and colleges have libraries of their own. Such libraries are meant for students and teachers only. There is a librarian who looks after everything in the library and issues books to the students. There are also daily newspapers to study the current affairs of the country as well as the world which broaden our mental horizon. We can fulfill our unquenchable thirst for knowledge by a library. A library is a sacred place. We must have respect for this sacred place. It is not fit place for talks or discussions.

Dear Ahon,

I received your letter. Hopping that you are well  by the grace of Allah. We are also fine. However, you wanted to know about the importance of reading books. Now, I am telling you about it.

It is saying that The more you read, the more you learn. If you read more, you gain the knowledge and experience. Everyone knows that book plays an important role in our life. Books are our best friends in a real sense. They demand nothing from us. They give us plenty of joy. Books are store house of information.

We must avoid reading bad books. We should be very careful while we select books. Remember that a good book develops our qualities. No more today.


Yours ever,
