The Library is in the lower left corner of the village, south of Ken's shop and
west of Rosie's Restaurant. Mary is in charge of the shop. You don't actually buy
anything at the Library. It holds the books that contain pictures of the bugs, fish,
events, and plants that you've found. Also the
Trade Center is found here.
Whenever you catch a bug, fish, or harvest a plant that was grown in the Hot House
for the first time, a picture is taken of it and documented in the books at the
Library. Each book has an image on it and it's name. To the right side is where you
can turn to the next page, go back a page, close the book, or print out the picture
using your Gameboy Printer. If you want to print, you can choose between dark, normal,
or light printing.
The easiest book to fill is the Fish book. Fish you can catch year round and you
don't have to trade with anyone to get all 18 pages of the book. The second is the
Bug book. There are different bugs in the Spring and Summer, so if you've caught
all of the Spring bugs you're finished collecting until Summer time. The Plant
book is one of the more difficult ones to complete. When you harvest your first
plants out of the Hot House, the book automatically has two of the opposite gender's
plant pictured in it's pages. That leaves two that it has no information on. You
must trade with someone of the opposite gender in order to obtain the seeds needed
to fill in the pictures. Even if you have a cat as a pet, it only will gather normal
crop seeds, not herb and flower seeds. If Mary comes by on your birthday, she'll give
you a gift of a picture that you wouldn't normally obtain.
The last book is the Photo book, which shows various events that you have participated
in. There are 7 photo that you can collect.

There are even more pictures in the other books. There are 18 in the fish

into their own sections.
