A sitcom set in a library... but no ordinary library. This is the library overseen and run by the most unlikely pairing since Mills met Boon.

Alice is a former child prodigy who won a place at Cambridge aged nine and, she's scared of everything, everything that is, except libraries and Snoo, a slightly confused individual with a have-a-go attitude to life, marriage, hairstyles and reality.

Snoo loves books, particularly when giving their front covers a nice polish with a bit of Pledge so they scrub up lovely.

Forever popping into the library is Dr. Cadogan, celebrity doctor to the stars and a man with his finger in every pie. Charming, indiscreet and quite possibly wanted by Interpol, if you want a discrete nip and tuck and then photos of it accidentally left on the photocopier, Dr Cadogan is your man.

The happy life at the library is interrupted by the arrival of Simon Nielson, a man with a mission, a mission to close down inefficient libraries. Fortunately, he hates his mission. What he really wants to do is once, just once, get even with his inexhaustible supply of high-achieving brothers.
