Was the so-called Second Class Library really a circulating library in the conventional sense or simply another term for the main Second Class lounging area?

The library was mostly a lounge area used by second class passengers, similar to the lounge on A deck for first class passengers. If I understand correctly, both areas had selections of books that passengers from their respective classes could 'borrow' and 'return' before the end of their voyage.

Thanks. It might just be coincidence or a last minute decision due to limitations of lounging areas but it is interesting to know that they expected Second Class passengers to be the most likely book readers.
