Recently, I went to a library. When I entered the library, I had a deja vu. Then, I suddenly realized that I have entered a library after 10 years. The librarian recognized me. I was a regular in the library. When he asked why I stopped visiting the library, I had no answer. I said I got married. he laughed. I was there for a couple of hours and I did not see any other people.

It sounds like you had an intriguing experience at the library with a strong sense of deja vu. Deja vu is a phenomenon where a person feels like they have experienced the current situation before, even though it is happening for the first time. It can be triggered by various factors like familiarity, stress, or fatigue.

The fact that the librarian recognized you after a decade highlights the impact regular patrons can have on library staff. Your return might have brought back memories for the librarian, leading to a friendly interaction.

The absence of other people in the library during your visit could be due to various reasons like the time of day, day of the week, or even the overall decrease in physical library usage in favor of digital resources.

Have you considered exploring the changes in libraries over the past decade, especially with the increasing shift towards digital resources and online services?
