Part 1

I went to my Library yesterday and found a Book on the top shelf way in the back called "THE ANSWER". I couldn't reach it and went to the front desk and asked the Librarian if she could help me get it down. But first she said she wanted to look the title up in the Computer because she had never heard of it. So I waited patiently as she perused her Computer and after a few minutes of her earnestly checking she looked up at me and said "SIR WE DON'T HAVE A BOOK WITH THAT TITLE". OK I said but I told her that I saw it and would like to check it out...It was too high up on a self in the back of the Library and I'd like for somebody to get a ladder and bring it down so I could take a look at it. She told me to please wait a minute and she disappeared only a few minutes later with the Head Librarian. She was an older women and had the appearance of one being in charge and she asked me why I was asking about a Book that isn't really there. HUH ?...I said listen... come with me and I'll show you the book high up on a shelf and then you can take it down for me so I can check it out. So they just looked at me as if I was nuts but finally relented to come with me.

Part 2
So I led the way and these two ladies followed behind sort of smirking and probably thinking I was nuts. WELL when I got to the place where I found the book I pointed to the top shelf which only had one Book on it called THE ANSWER....It was large and was all in white except in bold letters a beautiful Green Color and it said "THE ANSWER".....One women got on her cell phone and called the Maintenence Guy to come over with a ladder. He got there in a few minutes and got on his ladder and brought this Book down and handed it to me. They said they wanted to see it and I handed it to them. There was no author and no titles at the beginning of the book. It just started and said in Caps....IN THE BEGINNING...

I told them I wanted to take out the book and they said they couldn't let me do that because it wasn't in the Computer and and I had to leave it here BUT I could sit and read for awhile. They said they were going back to the Desk and call the Main Library for instructions as to what to do. SO I sat down, made myself comfortable and started to read. It was late in the day and I'd only get a few minutes to check it out. Before I knew it the two ladies came rushing back and swiped the book out of my hands and said that I couldn't read it. They said that a very similar book showed up at the Main Library of the County and they were investigating this book. They also told me that somebody called the Local Sherrif and they called the FBI and it was now under investigation...

It was late and the Library was closing so I took the book up to the Front Desk and started to leave the building. BUT as I got to the front door two police and two guys in suits stopped me from leaving. They asked me to come with them and asked some questions about the book and did I write it and leave it there. OR if I knew who wrote it. I thought they were nuts but they weren't smiling. They told me that this same book showed up in the past couple of hours in all of the Public Libraries in Florida and it was all being investigated. They said I had to come with them. SO I called my wife and sort of told her I was being detained over this book I found and I couldn't believe what she told me. She said it's all over the local news and it's all about this book....MORE LATER

This is a promising premise, and I'd like to see where you go with it. Might be interesting if the librarians go to the stacks and still don't see the book. The security at the door could then be positioned as persons different and distinct from the library staff, stepping in as the protagonist tries to leave with the book. Lots of different ways you could go with this. I encourage you to keep it on.
