Four people were asked by a local newspaper about their opinions of the town’s library. Read the texts and answer Questions 16 – 22. Choose one answer (A, B, C or D.)A Town LibraryPerson A‘The problem with the library is the lack of computers. The few they have are always taken and people have to wait ages to use one. This is worse during the summer months when we have exams. I prefer to revise in the library because it's too noisy at home. Many of the bookshelves seem half empty, so maybe some of them could be removed and more computersinstalled.’Person B‘A lot of the books for children are quite old and in poor condition. They should update the collection with current authors and replace a few of the favourite classics as well. The children's area is well organised but books get scattered about. You need a member of staff there to ensure the area is always kept tidy. There are usually three people working on the front desk, which seems unnecessary.’Person C‘I find it difficult to find things in the library. The way the shelves are arranged isn’t logical. They’re not clearly labelled and books often get put back in the wrong place. The children's area is too close to the study area, which is supposed to be quiet. It isn’t when large school groups come in. Also, the computers are too close together and there’s not enough space to work.’Person D‘I've always loved the library. When I was a child it was a great place to meet friends and do homework. I still go there to go online and read the news. There's no shortage of books, but there are so few people working there. I’ve noticed that particularly when I’ve been on a computer. There’s never anyone around to ask for help when they go wrong, which is frequently.’Who thinks the library needs more staff?
English Ivy betrays its poor reputation as a nuisance by its unparalleled ability to provide shade. By seamlessly covering the exterior of a building, it works as a natural insulator, blocking the sun and decreasing air conditioning costs. This means big savings for both building tenants and homeowners alike. And it can happen quickly, too. Under the proper conditions, established English Ivy can grow to cover an area of roughly 500 square feet per year. Given that most homes have a roof measuring roughly 2000 square feet, ivy-friendly homeowners can rest assured that their roofs will be completely covered in about four years. When considering growth rates of newly planted ivy, just remember the old adage: First year, it sleeps. Second year, it creeps. Third year, it leaps! For English Ivy, this is especially true. Now, detractors may take this opportunity to remind readers about how invasive English Ivy can be. For what ivy enthusiast hasn't been cautioned about its ability to burrow holes, fracture windows, and even deteriorate brick? But be warned. Oftentimes, this suggestion is taken to the comical extreme. Naysayers take a strange pleasure in spinning yarns about a particularly malevolent strand of ivy—one that slips in through the cracks on a hot summer night, silently strangling homeowners in their sleep. Admittedly, this can be a funny story to tell. But are we to believe such a tale? The intelligent gardener will quickly dismiss such rubbish for what it is.1.
