We have libraries in many malls and near our subway trains. And you don’t need to return them at the same place. You just drop them off anywhere you see the drop off box.
I remember a time when I was mesmerized by the librarian stamping on books with her huge chop. It looked so cool and I’ve always wanted to do that. That’s nostalgia. In reality I like that we can now borrow our books electronically with our ID cards and return them without any hassle.
We can borrow up to 4 books and keep them for 3 weeks. These days you can even search for the book you want online and when technology is used this way, I am happy.
