"I see. So they would be library assistants. You're just a guard? Do you get tired of it? Are you even the sort of thing that gets tired? My apologies if I'm being intrusive, but my plane knew nothing of this one, you see." She smiles.

Besides books, where an ordinary library might have lamps, this place has glowing, whispering orbs whose colors gradually cycle through the entire visible spectrum.
