What are the kinds of reading materials in the library?
There are a few different types of libraries. There is the private collector's library, where the private collector may be an individual or a private business or institution; public libraries which are accessible by the public and usually funded by tax money and ran by public servants; school/college/university libraries which provide access to resources for students, staff and possibly parents of students of the educational institution, and sometimes allow access by the public; state and national libraries which are usually not accessible by the public, and serve as a repository of published works within that state or nation; research libraries which hold indepth information on certain subjects; reference libraries where resources must be used at the library and are not lent out; and digital libraries which are accessible by computer, and may fit within one of the other three classifications.
Libraries may contain books, dvd's, cd's, video tapes, video games, board games, ebooks, magazines, newspapers, microfilm/microfiche, prints, maps, documents, audio books, other forms of digital media. This is not a complete list but covers most formats of information that libraries may contain.

A library user is a person who uses the library. A library user doesn't necessarily have to have a membership with the library; even if they do not borrow books, they can still be regarded as a "library user" if they use the library for other purposes (such as studying, reading books within the library, using the computers, or consulting reference materials).
