The Library is one of the main areas accessible from The Nexus.
If text events are disabled, most of the area's books will be inaccessible, and the Character Plains, Word World, and the Maiden Outlook will become inaccessible (Though you can still visit the Apartments and the Eyeball Archives). Text events can be activated by going onto Urotsuki's computer, selecting the tools icon and selecting the TXT option, then choosing the first option.
The walls of the Library are covered in a nighttime cityscape and contain sixteen rows of bookshelves and two couches. From these bookshelves are 56 different books that repeatedly slide in and out. When you interact with them, you are able to read them. They contain various images and literature of different forms, such as recipes, poetry and a diary.
The 2nd book on the shelf to the left of the door will take you to the Maiden Outlook if you turn to the leftmost page, the fourth shelf in the second row on the left has a 1/34 chance (decided when you pick up the book) of taking you to the Character Plains, and the last book in the 2nd shelf down from the door on the right will take you to the Apartments. (This book will only appear after having visited the apartments at least once). The first book on the shelf at the right serves as a one-way connection with Broken Faces Area if text events are currently deactivated and the Marginal effect is equipped.
One of the lower bookshelves has a ladder leaning against it. If you interact with the back of this shelf directly across from the ladder, you will be transported to Word World.
Equipping the Glasses effect near the bottom of the first room will make a book appear in the bookshelf right of the door, which will transport you to the Eyeball Archives. The fourth book in the same bookshelf will connect with the Picture Book and, if the connection from the Cloud Floor to Chaos World is unlocked, using the Gakuran effect in the same book will show a coded message, which unlocks an angel NPC in Fruit Cake World. By equipping the Rainbow effect, a book will appear on the last column of this shelf, where this book will display something else if the Sound Room ending has been seen and the Trombone effect is equipped.
Green books are unlocked in the lower area as you do things in the dreamworld. Only the first row contains books, and on the right all of them are green- the third book from the right contains the page at the end of the False Shoal, the fourth book from the right is accessible if you interact with the red lips creature in Florist, and the fifth next to the ladder is accessible upon reading the same green book in the Infinite Library. The second row houses three books, as well as a white book which is accessible upon obtaining it in the Stomach Maze, along with a dark-red book that is accessible upon visiting all of the Dream Park's sections, containing vague-looking scribbles. If you have met any one of the Five Guardians, those scribbles will be revealed to be doodles of the Five Guardians. The fifth book in the row can be obtained by entering the Seaside Road.
Books can be read by interacting with the red or green books popping out of the different library shelves. Below is a list of translations for each text in the first section of the library, listed by shelf according to the map, to either side of the door.

1st page: The Elderly People of the Festival The wall-climbing festival began. The first to climb are the elderly people whose feet are injured.

The elderly people had been carried away and disappeared somewhere. 2nd page: On the bus My aunt decorates my hair with ornaments. With a frown, I take them out. The hair ornament rolls onto the floor and breaks. 3rd page: Augmenting Friends From the back of the bus, a woman with a beautiful voice can be heard singing.

『Caring for your drought monkey ①』 • Although it has a mixed diet, too much moisture can cause its stomach to rupture. • Spread sawdust in its cage. Finely shredded newspaper is also acceptable. • After cleaning its cage, it’s also good to replenish its water supply. • Never keep two drought monkeys. • Drought monkeys mimic the actions of their owners. It's a sign of affection. • If it somehow learns to speak, poison your drought monkey immediately.

My hands are trembling. The scar on them burns painfully. It became a keloid that keeps throbbing. I can see it steadily getting worse. Someone, anyone, I'm begging you. I want this to end already. It hurts. It's so painful. Why. Why me? I see my reflection in the window. I look horrible. Every night I'm unable to sleep and then morning comes. It won't stop. Mother. Mother. Mom.

My body is overflowing with characters. A strand of hair, the enamel on my teeth, it's all composed of characters. Everything reflected in the eye is reproduced in the retina as characters. All that can be tasted becomes characters that convulse the brain. Even my dreams are constructed of characters. Ah! My heart has stopped. It's turned to characters and no longer pumps blood. But, that's not what concerns me. I noticed it in my fading consciousness; The characters were losing meaning. My decomposition was slow, just a little bit at a time, but for certain, I wasn't reading the characters. 'Illiteracy is death', I finally realised. Then, was this it? In death, are there still characters? I can't read. I can't read. I can't read anything. Letters spew out. I fade, I disappear. Interpretation disappears. I can't see anything. I can't even move a finger. Finally, I'm gone. I saw a truth, a book. I wish I had held them all a little closer, I've done something unforgivable. That alone, I put into characters, as I lowered my eyelids. oysm mmn sst smn wg msm...

Red Remedy The Red Remedy is a cure which is currently illegal, aiming to treat psychiatric disorders of all kinds. First, multiple patients are made to live in the same room, and each patient will be made to talk to each other, always using the word “red” in some way. Next, there will be a select day in which the patients will be exposed to a red light for approximately 30 minutes. Until an incident that resulted in 20 casualties at the XX Medical Center was brought to light, this method was used worldwide for about 30 years.

There are a lot of gears in this factory. Naturally, they spin, those wonderful cogs. However they never last for long, they're quite brittle. I see them turning, and I feel a little somber. Nobody else seemed to, but I noticed one of them. I watched it turn carefully, it's been spinning with vigor for 2 or 3 years. As a result, I started naming them one by one. Initially, the other employees found it bizarre, but before I knew it, they too started addressing the cogs by name. I'm sure they are doing it with pride. I know that I’m proud of the work I’ve done.

When I was young, I had a friend who said, "I don't know, I don't know." He said he didn't know about his dreams for the future, He said he didn't even know tomorrow ’s schedule, He was a friend who didn't even know what to do. Around the time he turned 60, he unexpectedly passed away. There was an accident. But he was conscious, and there was a cure too. But he just passed away. A few days before he passed, I visited him and talked to him. "Is it hard for you? Is there anything you want?" He looked at my face as usual and looked away, answering, "I don't know." He passed away. Not knowing.

How much time has passed since you went away? I have spent an immeasurable time in that cramped, pitch-black husk. No one's voice or hand or warmth or coldness or consciousness or light or gaze reach where I am. All the things you gave me have turned into colorless ash. Someday, I too will become that. Someday, I will become that. But I am not afraid if I can go to where you are. I am not afraid. Soon I can I go to where you are.

Bird cage. Jail cell. However, one does not say "birdcell". A birdcage's walls are almost entirely latticed. A jail cell. I try to put it into words myself, and it comes to mind. With those, a portion of the walls are formed of lattice. However, even though these walls are completely latticed, I say this is certainly a jail cell. If I were placed in a bird cage, I would certainly be "kept as a pet". If I were placed in a jail cell, I would certainly be "imprisoned". Supposing I were to put something in a cage without caring if I were keeping as a pet or imprisoning, then the one who judged would be the "something" inside. Am I being kept as a pet? Or am I being imprisoned?
