The Library is, as the name suggests, home to the literacy of Paradise. It is accessible through the Main Street area. A stone outside the library is dedicated to Senator Joseph McCarthy, and contains the line "...the whole sorry mess of twisted, warped thinkers are swept from the national scene..." from his speech at Wheeling, West Virginia, on February 9, 1950. The library mainly contains books belonging to the "Fiction" category. There is also a "Porn" section where you can see someone puking on the books, and even one wing called "Bomb Guides and Terrorist Handbooks", in which a terrorist is seen taking a look at the collection.
One of the errands that the Postal Dude must complete on Tuesday involves delivering the Catch Her in the Rye book that his wife had been reading (although the Postal Dude notes that the "Bitch can't even read"). When he arrives, a group of Book protestors is in the entrance hall of the library, shouting "Save a Tree, Burn a Book". The Postal Dude then proceeds to return the book, and after he does so, more book protestors arrive and start to burn the library. The book protestors then attack the Postal Dude and kill some civilians without any apparent reason other than being inside the library. The Postal Dude must then confront the protestors on his way out of the library, which is heavily damaged by the fire, resulting in varios parts destroyed and causing some bookcases to fall.
Once the Postal Dude is outside the library, the building becomes inaccessible due to fire in the entrance. The Paradise Times on Wednesday says that clean up in the library resumes after the clash against the book protestors.
