In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving fantasy town. The Mayor has just announced a new seat in the Village Council, Grand Librarian. The prestigious and lucrative position will be awarded to the citizen with the most extraordinary library! Unfortunately, several of your book collector colleagues (more like acquaintances, really) are also candidates.
To outshine your competition, youÕll need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so youÕll need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up - especially if they match your libraryÕs secret focus!
You only have a few days before the MayorÕs Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved in time! She is a tough cookie, and will use her Official Inspection Form to grade your library on several criteria including alphabetical order, shelf stability, prominent works, and variety. And donÕt think sheÕll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! YouÕll need shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic to surpass youropponents and become Grand Librarian!
