15 Differences Between A Library And A Bookshop

So 5 years ago, while in school, I wrote this post about the differences between a library and a bookshop. There were only 6 differences in that post. You can check it out here. In this article, we will be looking at 15 differences between a library and a Bookshop. Let’s go!

  1. Books are sold in Bookshops while you can only borrow a book, study or do your research in a library.
  2. Libraries are usually bigger than most bookshops. Because they have chairs and tables for study and large shelves containing old books. Most bookshops are small.
  3. You might find other items in a bookshop. For example, you might find pencils, math sets and other stationeries for sale but most libraries do not have them. If libraries own these things, you would not be required to pay for them.
  4. Libraries require a pass or card while you can go in and out of a bookshop as you please.
  5. Libraries have comfortable tables and chairs for research and study but bookshops do not have.
  6. Most libraries also come with free internet and computers for research. Bookshops do not.
  7. Any salesperson can work in a bookshop but libraries employ trained Librarians and Library assistants.
  8. Books in the library are acquired and processed, stamped, accessioned, catalogued, classified, and make it readily available to patrons to freely use, while books in the bookshop, on the other hand, are arranged for commercial purposes.
  9. Bookshops close in the evenings but most libraries are open 24/7.
  10. Libraries are really quiet because everyone is expected to put their phones on silent and keep conversations at a minimum. Bookshops are not…
  11. You can eat in a bookshop, take pictures and do everything else you would usually do in a shop. Libraries do not allow eating and loitering.
  12. There are usually more books and study resources in a library than a bookshop.
  13. Bookshops are mainly established for profit. Libraries are usually not established to make money.
  14. Libraries are mostly established for those who can’t afford or access books while bookshops require you to pay for books.
  15. Libraries keep older books than bookshops. In a bookshop, if a book doesn’t sell, it’s out. Libraries keep books for a very long time.
