Other Information:

A place where prisoners can have some time to read. Unsorted books are brought here by workmen. The books are sorted by prisoners in work hours, for which they must have passed the Foundation Education program and the according jobs have to be assigned in the Prison Labour view of the Logistics menu. Each working prisoner needs 12 tiles of space, and max. 100 prisoners can work in one library.

Two prisoners taking books from the library

Prisoners can read the books and relief the Literacy need. They can also lend a book from the library and take it to their cells. If returned, the book must be sorted in again.

When books are delivered they can contain contraband. Independent from any smuggling, the library always is a source of scissors.

Books wear out and become ruined after a while, and more will be delivered. Ruined books will have to be put on garbage by workmen. They can also be placed in a bin.
