Libraries are quiet spaces. Many people go to libraries to read or get work done. They know they will not be distracted by talking or loud noises.

Libraries organize books on shelves. Books of a similar type are kept together. For example, books about cooking will be stored on one set of shelves. Books about real people will be stored elsewhere. Keeping the books organized makes it easy for people to find the book they’re looking for.
