I need to understand, is 'drool' also used to express how you are in awe of something. Like, is this sentence right?

I am all drools for this library. It has a great collection of books.

Correct me if I am wrong.

It would probably be understandable—but the noun drool isn't normally used that way. And anybody hearing it would find it strange.

Also, while I'd like to say that adrool is a word, I can't. Because it isn't.

However, something that is a word, and which fits your meaning, is agog:


: full of intense interest or excitement : EAGER
// kids all agog over new toys

So, in your sentence, the closest expression that uses an entirely normal phrase is:

I'm all agog over this library. It has a great collection of books.

  • One normally 'drools' at the thought of appetising food, or, by extension, something that offers physical gratification. Feb 19, 2019 at 9:24
