[scene opens with a young female librarian (long blonde hair, thick dark glasses, flower dress) walking around outside, as she speaks directly to the camera]
JULIE: I'm Julie from the library. I'm fit, I'm curvy, and I've got saggy breasts. Well ... one saggy breast.
[she puts her hand on her right breast, then touches her left breast]
JULIE: This one's alright.
[cut to another shot of Julie speaking directly to the camera]
JULIE: I like, um, packed lunches. Preferably a good old sandwich ... Jigsaw puzzles of trains, because I find them really challenging. Shadows, I really love a good shadow. Especially, like, when it's on the river. It's so pretty and so beautiful. I'm a big fan of platonic relationships, although I'm not very good at them.
[cut to another shot of Julie speaking directly to the camera]
JULIE: I like a man who is, um ... well read.
[she looks down, as if to compose herself]
JULIE: Sorry. I like a--
[she suddenly starts to cry, taking off her glasses and covering her face with her hand]
JULIE: I'm so sorry, I've just ... I've just got out of a really good book.
[she starts to cry again]
JULIE: It was so good, and it was so beautiful. It was called "Maurice" by Ian Foster, and I wish I didn't have to finish it. And I'm not gonna read it again, am I? I'm not the type of person who goes there twice ...
[she wipes her eyes, and tries to compose herself]
JULIE: I'm looking for a relationship ... I wanna fall in love, and I'm not sure what kind of love I want.
[she puts her glasses back on and sighs]
JULIE: I've never read a book where there's a good relationship that I'm jealous of, like ... I don't want the--
[she starts crying again]
JULIE: I'm so sorry! I'm just really heartbroken, because I can't read all of the books! I wanna read all of the books ...
[cut to another shot of Julie speaking directly to the camera]
JULIE: Books are amazing! Hard copies, soft copies, tiny little pamphlets. I love books. I like ... covers that don't have the film on them. I don't like those books, but all the other books like.
[she shakes her head]
JULIE: Magazines, no. I don't like magazines.
[she sighs]
JULIE: I don't have a favorite book, I love them all just the same. I love them just the way they are ... although I do prefer first editions.
[cut to a closeup of Julie's face, as she holds up a small flower to the camera and lifts up her chin]
JULIE: I dunno, do I like butter?
