Foods, Sightseeing, and Experience in Tsukuba, JAPAN
Children like picture books so much but picture books are more expensive than novels even though picture books have fewer pages. Libraries give children opportunities to meet and read new books for free. It is convenient place for children as same as adults. Following picture shows book shelves for children in Tsukuba public library.
I also like libraries although latest books are not available. I like the atmosphere where I can select my favorite one from plenty of books.
Tsukuba city has a large library, Tsukuba public library, that is Tsukubashiritu Tyuou Tosyokan in Japanese, where Tosyokan means library. Tsukuba city allows a resident to borrow up to ten books at the same time. The library has many books, magazines, news papers, and so on. They are majorly in Japanese but the library has small numbers of foreign books as well. I often visit a book shelf that has English magazines because the magazines are more expensive than Japanese ones in book stores. I found what each magazine featured by checking the magazines. If you want to borrow books in the library, you would have to make your library card in advance. You should take your identification to the library in your first visit.
Many students study in the library. The library set up desks for common use along the courtyard. The sign, 節電, means that please save electricity, implying that visitors should turn off the lights before leaving the desks.
Do you like books? If you look for any interesting book, novel, magazine, genre, old book, and expensive book, I recommend you to visit Tsukuba public library. You do not need to take your identification card if you will not borrow any book there. I hope that you encounter nice books there!
