(update) Please note that the bookshelves used in this lot wont allow your Sims to access skill building books.

This library is part of my Mini Collection 10x10 lots. Its a cute little 2 story place with a reading room and toilet downstairs and PCs and Chess upstairs. The back garden has an easel for those artistic Sims.

Send your Sims here to do their homework, read a good novel, do work reports, build logic and painting skills , chat online or meet new Sims.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

It's beautiful and I really appreciate the idea of 10x10 community lots, but... you used the wrong bookshelves. There is only 1 set of shelves that will generate skill books in a library [they are the modern ones, I forget the name]. All your library will contain is fiction. Sorry, don't mean to complain - it really is a great lot otherwise. I look forward to seeing other lots in this series.

There are a couple of bookshelves that would work. It's sad that the most obvious choice for a Library doesn't meet the requirements for a library.

Anyway, changing the shelves is a simple thing, I've had to do it in EAxis Libraries, too. Thank you for the lovely mini-lot! I'm always on the lookout for tiny functional lots.

Your welcome. I have a whole series of these 10x10 lots. I am in the process of uploading them. Just waiting for the mods to approve. :D

Thanks very much for your nice comment! When i said skill building I meant by using the chess table and art easel. Most Sims can afford their own bookcases at home to build other skills with. Thanks for the tip though. I might go back and edit the description to clarify what i meant. Thanks again

You can fill in the other self's your self with skill book if you don't have a mod to do so. So I never worry about it. As it is hafe the time even if some one put in the nice book case with skill books there not there. I love this little Place and Love you small spots

As a side not to Post dated ::2nd Feb 2011, 05:01 PM:: buy NeonSim,I never thought of sim's being able to skill other stuff there , that is new and Kool.

These lots make me want to make my own little island world. Too bad I lack all creativity to do it.
