During the first three seasons of BTVS, the school library was where the Scoobies always hung out, concocting schemes and plans, generally socialising and entertaining us.

Moving into season four, notice how much time they spend at Giles' house.

I think its a great place for us to watch the characters. It has a really warm vibe to it and is quite homely.

I was always of the opinion that neither the Magic Box nor Buffy's house during later seasons really worked that well as a good place for the gang to congregate, but, for what they did in season four, Giles' house just worked excellently.

Pluses, minuses, on where the Scoobies spent most of their time throughout the seasons?

The library looked the koolest, but the cast & crew hated filming there! I'd say Gile's apartment was 2nd.

Giles' place makes sense for Scooby HQ as Giles can store all of his books there. Buffy, Willow and Xander have to travel anyway because of work (Xander) or just to leave campus (Buffy and Willow). Giles doesn't need to go anywhere because he's unemployed so it makes sense for the scoobies to go to him rather than him travelling unnecessarily.

They should've all gone to Buffy's house for thanksgiving though. Joyce was out of town, but Buffy's home kitchen is bigger than Giles' plus she has a dishwasher.

I think it works. My guess is, they wanted to keep Joyce and her home out of Season 4, to enhance the college atmosphere.

Plus at Giles house it meant he had to do the washing up! 😉

I always liked the magic box as a venue
