The library which is called Durmand Hall contains four readable books and three Non-player characters, you can have a conversation with two of them. This is how it looks inside the library:
The Centaur War is the first book you see when you enter the library. The book contains four pages of information between the Centaur War between Centaurs and Humans.
Written more than 100 years ago, this well-preserved book bears the mark of Vonda Lassien, one the the foremost scholars of the clash between humans and centaurs.
The first documented human-centaur battles occurred in 300 A.E. when human settlements began spreading from the fertile Krytan valley into the Shiverpeaks.
Over time, the human settlements grew and spread. Simultaneously, centaur tribes began to organize their efforts to hold and retake thieir lands.
Early in his reign, Krytan King Thorn proposed a treaty to the centauran tribes, but the centaurs rejected its terms as unfavorable.
The Elder Dragons is a book with information regarding The Elder Dragons which we all know, have risen.
This book has been well-thumbed in the introduction, it says, "They are ancient and unfathomable. They embody concepts of nature - fire, ice, crystal and even death - but their very presence threatens to destroy the world."
We know not when these Elder Dragons came to be, only when we became aware of their awakening.
Fire: Primordus (1120 AE)
Primordus was the first to awaken in our time. Its previous awakening is the only one still known to history. Dwarven texts tell of "Great Destroyers," now believed to be a reference to Promordus and his army.
Primordus rules over fire. As of this writing, his minions, known as destroyers, plague the wetlands in the southwest of Tyria.
Ice: Jormag (1165 AE)
Jormag and his army arose in the Far Shiverpeaks. Even in sleep, their influence could be felt, as seen in the norn legend of Jora and Svanir.
Jormag has the power of ice that creeps and consumes the world around it. Those corrupted by him become icebrood, casting aside their own will to serve their master.
Death: Zhaitan (1219 AD)
Zhaitan's awakening caused the once-lost island nation of Orr to rise from the sea, flooding many coastal lands in the process.
More accurately a master of undeath, Zhaitan has the ability to convert corpeses into minions with his very breath.
Crystal: Kralkatorrik (1320 AD)
Kralkatorrik awakened in the charr land and flew south to the Crystal Desert. In his wake, a scar of crystal appeared, creating the Dragonbrand.
Those altered by Kralkatorrik are named "Branded" after this landmark. Survivors of the Branding say the conversion occured instantly, those affected turning to powerful and violent.
Winds of Change does not contain any content from the actual book, but a note.
This book is already opened to the last page. There it says, "Contact with Cantha was finally lost when the floods from Orr's rising disrupted trade". Somone has added a hadnwritten note in the margin.
Someone scribbled, "They've closed their shores to us and left us to fight the dragons alone. To the Mists with them."
Bloodline of Kryta is about the royal of Kryta.
This book bears the royal seal of Kryta. The first page begins: "The royal lineage of Kryta, as with all royality, descends from King Doric. This legendary figure was the first to unite the human kingdoms in Tyria."
Once, the lineage of Kryta was thought lost until the commoner Salma was found to be the daughter of King Jadon. Salma drove the White Mantle from Kryta and became a hero to her people.
Queen Jennah, a direct descendant of Salma, is the current queen of Kryta. She rules her people from Divinity's Reach.
