This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is a gift for herr burgermeister, a very gallant knight, who asked a question I couldn't answer.

Bookshelf of Education recoloured to match Almighty Hat's University Medieval Furniture in Pooklet Colours, using Almighty Hat's textures. These recolours work on both the Base Game and Free Time 'Buyable Bookshelf of Education'. To make it a little easier I have named the recolours the same as Almighty Hat, so they will show up in the same order as Almighty Hat's recolours, in the buy mode catalogue.

The MESHES ARE NOT INCLUDED with these recolours, you will find them HERE.

Found: Buy Mode > Hobbies > Knowledge. Price: §500.

Custom Content used in my screenshots: Book of Talent by treeag, Medieval Furniture recolours by Almighty Hat & Recolour of the Bookshelf of Education Books.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. A colour chart is included in the zip file.

Additional Credits: SimPE - CEP - GIMP - Milkshape - UV Mapper - The Compressorizer - Maxis/EA Games and MTS.
Almight Hat for the textures I used in these recolours.
Pooklet for the colours.

This was confusing to me as I thought this would function just like the Education career reward bookcase does - where you can study all the skills. After I downloaded it, I realized that it is just a regular bookcase.

I was disappointed because I wanted a bookcase with all the functionality of the career reward bookcase but that didn't have that big book on top of it and that comes in different colors.

@ sashagillis, dharden has done a couple of default 'Education Career Rewards Books First for Learning' bookcases. To my knowledge they work like the original, with all the 'Education Career Rewards Books First for Learning' options however, they are slaved to mine so my recolours work with them. You can find them HERE.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their on it.
