Borrow Books From Library

For the mod to work you need also XML injector (the current version).  

I came up with idea for this mod while making Bookworm aspiration. It was quick and fun to do it :) First Sim needs to go to Library and talk to Librarian to sign in. Then each time they want to borrow a book, they first need to talk to librarian. Librarian is available in the library only during the day (I think between 8 am – 10 pm? ). 


You can borrow only 1 book at a time. It costs 0$. Remember to return the book on time (until buff expires). If you don’t, you’ll pay regular fee of 5$. To return the book, just click on it and choose interaction.  

There is also phone interaction to extend the loan period of borrowed book and an interaction with librarian to pay a fee for a lost book (this will allow to borrow books again without the need to return borrowed earlier book). 


I think it adds a small bit of realism to the game and finally makes libraries functional :D 

One known thing that I can’t change – once you borrow a book, you can actually return any book that you have, librarian won’t care. What's important - you returned the book, that's it.

Requires only base game.
