There a numerous parts of libraries, though each library may have different parts to another, as the parts are generally divided by the types of books that each part hold. Most commonly libraries have a section for fiction and nonfiction, which are then both broken down into their sub genres, such as in fiction section, crime, romance, horror, science fiction etc. While in nonfiction they can be broken down into, autobiographies and biographies, travel books, study books etc. Some libraries also have sections for DVD and CD rental as well as comic book and graphic novel sections. Most modern libraries also have a section where you can use computers to serve the internet, print things off, or simply search for a book in the library.  The meaning of library is 'a considerable collection of books kept for use, and not as merchandise; as either, a private library or a public library.'

Public and institutional collections and services may be intended for use by people who choose not to - or cannot afford to - purchase an extensive collection themselves, who need material no individual can reasonably be expected to have, or who require professional assistance with their research. In addition to providing materials, libraries also provide the services of librarians who are experts at finding and organizing information and at interpreting information needs. Libraries often provide a place of silence for studying.

Today's libraries are repositories and access points for print, audio, and visual materials in numerous formats, including maps, prints, documents, microform (microfilm/microfiche), CDs, cassettes, videotapes, DVDs, video games, e-books, audio books and many other electronic resources. Libraries often provide public facilities to access to their electronic resources and the Internet. Modern libraries are increasingly being redefined as places to get unrestricted access to information in many formats and from many sources. They are extending services beyond the physical walls of a building, by providing material accessible by electronic means, and by providing the assistance of librarians in navigating and analyzing tremendous amounts of information with a variety of digital tools.
