In [[The Doctor's TARDIS|the TARDIS]], the Doctor and Donna arrive in the [[51st century]] on a planet-sized [[book]] repository called simply "[[the Library]]". It is an entire world, holding every [[book]] ever written, and powered by the most powerful [[computer]] ever. Shortly after arriving, they realise however that the Library is completely empty. The Library's computers confirm that they are the only humanoid life at present, but it then claims there are over "a million million [[lifeform]]s" in the Library. Donna asks why they really came here, and the Doctor admits that he earlier received a message for help on his [[psychic paper]]. He doesn't know who it's from, but Donna observes that it was signed with a kiss. Nearby, a statue with a strangely realistic human face, called a [[Node]], warns them to count the shadows... Donna is shocked to find that the faces are selected by the Nodes from those which have been "donated" by the deceased. Just then, the lights begin to go out around them. Wary of the warning regarding shadows, they race through the Library aisles until they reach a well-lit room. The doors are locked, but Donna kicks them open.

There they see a spherical security camera hovering in the air. In her living room, the little girl opens her eyes at the same moment the camera shuts itself down. The Doctor scans the camera with his [[the Doctor's sonic screwdriver|sonic screwdriver]]. The girl screams, terrified by the sound of the sonic screwdriver inside her head. The camera sends the Doctor a message that begs him to stop the noise, which he does. The camera and the girl both warn that "others" are coming; the Library has "been breached". The door opens, and a team of explorers in spacesuits enter. The leader walks up to the Doctor and greets him, "Hello, sweetie." She tells the others they can take off their helmets, and the Doctor begs them all to leave immediately. Another member of the group complains that there shouldn't be anyone else there, he had paid for exclusive rights to the expedition. On hearing the word "expedition", the Doctor questions whether they're [[archaeologist]]s and says that, as a time traveller, he points and laughs at archaeologists. The leader then introduces herself as Professor [[River Song]], archaeologist. She clearly knows the Doctor, but he does not know her. Professor Song explains that her team are there with Mr [[Strackman Lux]], whose family built the Library, to learn why it has been sealed for the last hundred years.
