Ethel Marshall, a widow with three grandchildren and a passion for learning and books, decided to donate her old home to be made into a library. It's since been renovated with newer and nicer carpet and paint, furniture, and decorations. It maintains a cozy homey feel with a friendly atmosphere.

1st Floor: Entrance; fiction room with bookcases & couches; computer room with 5 computers; cozy reading area with fireplace; work area with tables & chairs; coffee area; 3 restrooms.
2nd floor: children's room with toys, books, couches, and beanbag chairs; nonfiction room with bookcases & couches; 1 restroom with toddler potty; balcony with benches & outdoor lighting.
Outside: garden area with flowers, fountain, & bushes; small playground for the kids.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
