“Yes. That is exactly what [dementors] are [depression]. It was entirely conscious. And entirely from my own experience. Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced. It is that absence of being able to envisage that you will ever be cheerful again. The absence of hope. That very deadened feeling, which is so very different from feeling sad. Sad hurts but it’s a healthy feeling. It’s a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.” – J.K. Rowling, June 2000
"Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. […] they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them. Get too near a dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. […] You’ll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life." Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban pg 155
"Thought I was goin’ mad. Kep’ goin’ over horrible stuff in me mind… […] "Yeh can’ really remember who yeh are after a while. An’ yeh can’ really see the point o’ livin’ at all. I used ter hope I’d jus’ die in me sleep. When they let me out, it was like bein’ born again, ev’rythin’ I came floodin’ back, it was the bes’ feelin’ in the world." – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban pg 183-184
“It conjures up a Patronus,” said Lupin, "which is a kind of anti- dementor — a guardian that acts as a shield between you and the dementor.” […] ”The Patronus is a kind of positive force, a projection of […] hope, happiness, the desire to survive.” – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban pg 196

The library at Hogwarts is home to thousands of books and is open until 8pm for those in need of a quiet place to study. Most books are available for loan and can be put on hold but expect popular books to have a waiting list during busy periods.
It is run by librarian Madam Irma Pince, who is infamous amongst the student population for the lengths at which she goes to protect the books. In order to discourage doodling and stealing, she has jinxed many of the books to hit students over the head if any attempt is made.
Much like its muggle equivalent, rules of no food or loud conversations are strictly enforced. As is the rule of no students within the Restricted Section without written permission from a teacher. To further protect students, it has been known for headmasters to completely remove certain books altogether.

“I was a weirdo (as a teenager). I wasn’t picked on or anything. And I wasn’t smarter than other kids; that’s not why I didn’t fit in. I’ve always just had this weird anxiety. I hated recess. I didn’t like field trips. Parties really stressed me out. And I had a very different sense of humor.”
