Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Library"

The meaning of "Library" in various phrases and sentences

Q: That’s back by the library. ne anlama geliyor?
A: "Back by" could mean it is back in the direction you came from. Or it and the library could be in the back part of a larger school or campus or town.
Q: I forgot my library card. Can I check you out? ne anlama geliyor?
A: It’s a pickup line. Pickup lines are phrases (often cheesy or funny ones) used when you want to flirt with somebody.

“Checking someone out” means to look at a person in an admiring way because you find them attractive.
Example: “Oh my god, that waitress was totally checking you out!”

When you “check out a book” you’re borrowing it from a library.
Example: “Are you checking out that book or just browsing?”

So although the words “check out” are the same in both, the meaning is different when applied to a person 🙂

They begin the pickup line by saying “I forgot my library card” and then finish it with “can I check you out?”, but they mean the other version of “check out”, not the one used for library books, lol.
