    Summary

    The Danish Royal Library was cranky. Feeling overwhelmed, unloved, and stretched nearly beyond bearing.

    Then a friend from across the sea gave a new perspective.

    Summary

    It's difficult out there for a national library, all by herself. The Royal Library is in the process of navigating these troubled times, while also trying to bring a young protege into the fold, so it can be difficult to manage on one's own. But when an arranged marriage to the upstart, sprightly, young, forward-thinking State and University Library is proposed, everything changes. Royal, State, and everyone around them join the dance of diplomacy, manners, and good, old-fashioned romance that comes along with keeping up with the nation, patrons, and everything else.

    Summary

    A Book Weight meets a lot of interesting books in her time. None of them stick with her as long as she'd like — but it turns out, books don't stick with much of anybody for long. They always have new stories to tell, new patrons to be with, and who's a lowly Book Weight to fight with that?

    Summary

    Once, not so very long ago, there was a University, a City on a Hill, with a Library that was a Borg Cube. (1)

    Oh, when they built this library, there was no such intention. When they built it, they built the Library as the Athens of the West. For many years, that was exactly what it was. A little quirky perhaps, but by no means full of dark terrors.

    The change came when the sheer number of books within had the Librarians praying to Thoth that they might add an addition. Some stacks as it were. Since by that era, no one was thinking classical and everyone was thinking utilitarian and modern, they built a Borg Cube attached to Athens of the West. This was when the Library's name changed in accordance with its new and terrible nature.
