Shiori locks herself in and barricades the library to prevent the library committee from disposing of books for the media room. As the committee tries to get inside, Shiori falls asleep and dreams how her love for books began until she is awoken by Keima, who manages to enter the library through a hole at the rooftop made by Elsie with her raiment. Keima has come to support Shiori in her protest and stays close to her. The library committee cuts the electricity to the library, surprising Shiori and causes some books to fall over them. As she hugs Keima, Shiori tells him that only he understands her love for books and reasons for protecting them. However, Keima calls her a liar, saying that she did not barricade herself to protect her books, instead herself to the world. Keima already knew that she always wanted to socialize, but her fears of being misunderstood prevented that, which is why she reads books as an escape from the real world. Troubled with this revelation, Shiori feels unsure on what to do until Keima drags her out of the rubble of books, telling her that he will give her courage and kisses her, which releases the loose spirit from her body allowing Elsie to capture it. As the library committee enters the library, Shiori finally speaks up for herself and explains her reasons which the committee agrees to have a meeting. In the epilogue, Shiori feels like she has forgotten someone who was with her during her protest so she writes a story on what she remembers.
