The library belongs to every person in the building. This is a place where you can find books (naturally), read, study, explore, use the computers, or just hang out.
If you are expecting a quiet, boring place, you will be surprised. The library is where things get done and that seldom happens quietly.
You may earn up to 50 hero points for each book review that you complete.
