Additionally, a light novel released early last year for a total of 2 volumes. The visual novel was the first highest selling PC game of January 2013.
Here is a synopsis of the visual novel from MAL:
The story is set at Shiomi Academy, a vast, prestigious academy with a Daitoshokan (literally, “great library”) that rivals Japan’s national library. As a member of the Library Club, Kyoutarou Kakei goes to Daitoshokan to enjoy reading by himself. He then meets a second-year girl named Tsugumi Shirasaki through the efforts of a so-called “shepherd” who fulfills people’s wishes. Eventually, more girls join the club thanks to the “shepherd.”
The Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai anime will be airing this October, during the Fall/Autumn 2014 anime season. Further information on the series, such as the cast, more character designs and air date, will be revealed at a later date.
