Description

Description

This is a place where librarian players can add any books they see fit, for other players to subsequently borrow.

You can browse the catalogue using the commands described above to find the item you want. When you borrow an item, you are told when it must be returned by before you start being charged. You will not be able to borrow more items whilst you have outstanding fines.

Remember this is a community run library with finite resources. It can only lend as many copies of an item that other librarian players have added.

Normally you have to be explicitly allowed to use the library by one of the librarians, so you should approach them if you do not have access to use it.

You can report lost or damaged books with the 'report' command. You will be charged a set amount and the loan will be cleared. The library will not be able to get that copy of the item back, so librarians won't be happy if you lose too many books.
