[scene opens with a young male librarian (black hair, glasses, grey sweatshirt, blue jeans) sitting in one of the seminar rooms at the Everett L. Cattell Library, as he is reading a book (nodding to himself and moving his lips), when he suddenly looks up at the camera and slams the book shut]
AKASH: Well hello!
[he laughs and gives the camera a goofy grin]
AKASH: Didn't see you there, and for a moment!
[he laughs again]
AKASH: Well, welcome to the Malone University Library, where books are ...
[he bends down next to a stack of books and sniffs them, then turns back to the camera]
[he laughs again, then gets up]
AKASH: Well, follow me to a world of knowledge ... and discovery! There will also be some of that!
[he gives the camera another big goofy grin, then opens the door]
AKASH: Well, welcome ... into my home!
[cut to a montage of the librarian walking through the stacks and pulling books off the shelves (set to dubstep music), which finishes with him turning to the camera and giving a thumbs up]
[cut to another shot of the librarian pulling a book off the shelf, when he suddenly turns to the camera and puts a finger to his lips]
AKASH: [whispers] Shh! We're in a library!
[a loud crashing noise can be heard off camera, then cut to a male student on the floor covered in books]
[cut to the librarian standing over the student, as he puts a finger to his lips and shushes him]
AKASH: Shh! We're in a library!
[cut to the librarian speaking directly to the camera]
AKASH: Sometimes you can't reach a book you need ... that's when the tri-pedestaliac elevation device comes in handy!
[cut to a stepstool on the floor next to the librarian, as he uses it to reach a book on the top shelf]
AKASH: Works every time!
[cut to the librarian standing next to a fire extinguisher on the wall]
AKASH: What we have here is our local fire-putter-outter ... Sometimes, even in the library, it's important to be safe!
[cut to the librarian pulling a large book from the shelf]
AKASH: One time, I read the unabridged version of this book!
[he laughs, then suddenly gets a serious look on his face]
AKASH: Well actually, three times!
[he laughs again, then cut to the librarian running his fingers along some books on the shelf, when he pulls one out and moves it two places to the right]
[cut to the librarian standing next to a cabinet of map drawers]
AKASH: This section is where we organize some of our files. Here, let me show you!
[he tries to open one of the drawers, but it's locked, so he looks around confused before wandering off]
[cut to the librarian pointing at an empty shelf]
AKASH: These books are invisible.
[he pantomimes picking up one of the books and dropping it, as a loud crash can be heard]
[he then points at another empty shelf]
AKASH: These are the books that have become extinct.
[he makes an exaggerated gesture of holding his nose]
AKASH: Ew, gross!
[he laughs, then points at another empty shelf]
AKASH: These are the books that have not yet been written.
[he points at the camera]
AKASH: Maybe you will be one who will write a book ...
[he points with his other hand]
AKASH: Or you!
AKASH: Or you!
[he laughs again, then adjusts his glasses]
AKASH: Well, that's all for today. I'm Akash the librarian, reminding you to read and-or write a book!
[he smiles, then uses the stepstool to reach another high book, as the scene fades to black]
