From The Urban Dead Wiki
The Quartly Library is very close to several useful buildings, such as Dempsey Grove Police Dept, Eligius General Hospital, two NecroTech buildings, and the Hildebrand Mall.
Before the attacks, the library was world famous for the collection of Rare Tomes of Forbidden Knowledge which are kept in a sub-basement. It remains to be seen how many of the books have survived the Zombie Plague.
|This location is under Truce: zombies, PKers, Bounty Hunters and humans may all stay here without fear of being attacked by the others. No killing. No barricades.|

January 19, 2008 The library has not, in fact, fallen, though it is suffering such constant and repeating violations of the no-kill, no-cade policy that it may soon be. With violation coming from both human and survivor alike, and repeated attacks from and calls for its downfall from various groups, it looks as though one of the few places in Malton where both harmanz and zambahz alike could happily stop and read a book together may soon find itself gone.

January 19, 2008 The library is fallen, with 25 zeds inside and many more out. All survivors are asked to not move, for the silver platter you presented yourselves on does make you look even tastier! Finitor 05:22, 20 January 2008 (UTC)
August 16, 2007 Some of the human Librarians insist upon sleeping in the Library, even though the number of undead in the building has surpassed the mythical 3 to 1 ratio. Also, the library's copy of Principia Mathematica is missing, and we will waive all late fees for whoever returns the tome. Sir Fred of Etruria 06:08, 16 August 2007 (BST)
July 12, 2007 During the library's "remodeling phase," the Quartly Librarians are gathering overdue books from dropboxes throughout Malton. Fine Forgiveness Week runs from July 14-21, and residents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
July 10th, 2007 The combined efforts of feral zombies and a small but dedicated group of anti-librarian griefers culminated in the overrunning and ransack of the Library, in what is becoming known as The Battle Of (insert witty name of battle here).
May 31, 2007 - The Inquisitors of the Militant Order of Barhah made a guest appearance at the Quartly to say hello, grab some (purely affectionate) hugs and check out a few books before continuing on their barhaptizmal schedule in Roftwood.
May 11, 2007 - The Apocalypse Now troupe of Drama Club performed here by special invitation from Quartly Study Group as part of a talent show being held here. See the group page for details and a .JPG of the performance.
August 28, 2006 - The Quartly Library remains under the control of the Quartly Study Group and their allies. The Head Librarian is very pleased with their ability to keep the library safe despite the recent infestation of Zombies. The QSG will keep making attempts to reclaim Hildebrand Mall and the nearby neighborhoods.
|Libraries are for everyone and should remain barricade free.|
The Quartly Study Group has been defending and maintaining the library on behalf of the citizens of Malton. Any survivors are welcome to make this location their permanent base of operations, the Head Librarian only asks that they respect the Rules of The Library.
