Lena, unfortunately, not many pple I teach have the habit of reading. They read magazines or comics. Hell, they don't even want to read their textbooks for exams, let alone other sort of books. Quite a waste of resources in the national library. Most pple are there for the free internet, power point and the aircon.

Not sure why you needed to bring that statement in then. I find it unwarranted. They have as much rights to use the library as us, and if we don't use it, it's our own problem (if it's even a problem).
