I'm 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.
