sure all of you have been to a library. There are lots of things
for you in the library. Books, magazines, computers, videos.
There are lots of information that you can look at when you need to do
research. Well, back in the ancient times, there were very few libraries.
And those that existed were private libraries. Perhaps the best library
in the world at the time was the Library of Alexandria. Alexander
the Great ordered the library built in 331 B.C. The site chosen was
in Egypt and the library was destined to be a place where scholars would
go to do research. Find out about this magnificent library and the
famous people who used it in this new book.
