Libraries are that kind of places where everybody has been.  A library for some people is the spot to be quiet and get the total concentration to get a task done.

Therefore, I could say that a library is a magic location where your brain can find a comfort zone and surprise you with the best ideas.

On the third floor at Embassy Melbourne, there is a modern library where students can find roughly 12,682 books.

This library not only embraces English students, it is possible to see students from CSU, AIAS and Martin College.

On comparison to the classic libraries, this one is furnished with green ottoman chairs, comfortable tables in different shapes and a range of computers.

“We have books in different levels for Embassy students. They tend to use them to learn new vocabulary and improve their reading comprehension. Those books contain short and entertaining stories,” says Anna Sura, the librarian at Church Lane.


These books are very useful because if the students wants to know what level the book is and how many words they should read, they just need to check in the back of the book.

In addition, there are interesting novels, classic stories, fiction, non-fiction and graphic novels.

How to borrow a book?

If you want to borrow a book, the easy way to do it is going to the self-serve kiosk.

“You press ‘borrow items’, then wave in your student card, place all books on the pad and press ‘print receipt.’ It is pretty fast and you can get the books for two weeks,” Sura explains.
