A library is an establishment which collects and displays knowledge, generally in the form of books, organizing them by type and genre.

Other than being useful respositories of knowledge and information, libraries are well-known for enforcing a quietness rule (no noises or talking louder than whispering), and are frequently visited by people seeking the unique atmosphere of peace and quiet that a library provides.

Most libraries collect copies of books that have achieved worldwide success, magazine and periodical issues, as well as the works of local writers. Certain special libraries, referred to as Silverlight Libraries, possess books written during the medieval eras of the Mazes. Studying these books has contributed to much of the modern understanding of the Mazes' history, leading to the Silverlight Libraries being considered of extreme importance, if not sacred, in certain circles.

Libraries also possess a computer room. Library computers possess software allowing any visitor to check the library's inventory of books, how many copies are available, as well as which room and bookshelf they are located.
