I have only been to the school library a few times my entire academic career. I know when I was maybe six or seven I had a library card for our local one, but we only went like once or twice. The place ended up closing down due to lack of people coming in too not long after if I remember right.
Even in middle school we didn’t have to go to the school library to pick our books that we had to read, the teachers had a little selection for us to pick from.
I only did it once in college. I had to do a report and the professor actually made it mandatory for us to check out a book at the library for the paper instead of using the internet. We also had to show her some proof that we did.
Overall I’m not a library person. The last time I was in one they still used that card catalog. Do they even exist anymore? O_o

Last time I was at a library, was like 3-4 years ago. The school made my class go as part of some, "go the library you dumb kids" publicity stunt. Most of the knowledge in there is online anyway, so few of us ever came back again. They did make a point of showing us that we could also rent movies, and games though, which is pretty cool.
Here's the wiki definition. Basically they were used to keep track of books within the library. In the old days when you went looking for a specific book you would have to search it to find where in the library it was located. Back then every library had them. They were big wooden boxes with a bunch of little drawers. ^_^ My highschool was using them around 2008 and my college had them during 2012.
