Describe a piece of local news that people are interested in.

You should say:

  • What it was about
  • Where you saw/heard it
  • Who was involved
  • And explain why people were interested in it 

I recently read about the completion of a new library located right in the heart of my city. I have to admit that I was over the moon when I saw this wonderful news on the government website. As you know, I’m a book fanatic!

According to the news, the library has a vast collection of books, including business, literature, geography, technology and history. It’s also trying to expand its collection of English books to help create a more constructive environment for people who want to immerse themselves in a foreign language. This piece of positive news has interested many people in my city, especially those who are avid readers, because everyone can go to the library free of charge to broaden their horizons.

Now, hundreds of men, women and children can pay a visit every day to take advantage of the library’s resources. Moreover, by providing free access to educational news and historical resources, the library helps keep the public informed with facts. Besides, the library is a great place to socialize with like-minded people, helping build good relationships. On top of that, it’s a quiet space for disciplined study. You know, many people find it very difficult to study at home or in dorm rooms because of all the disturbance, so they can go to the local library and study there in peace.

This news about our new library is the most fantastic piece of news I have heard recently.
