First words

Having read through the first 240 words that I wrote, I realize that it needs to be at least twice that. Even though it should be short, it really needs to set the scene for the book. This is like world-building in the first chapter. Peter's world is libraries. I've written another 500 words just describing the library, the rare books room, and especially the grand atrium entrance of the university library. It is obvious that it has been donated by a very wealthy patron as a monument to himself.
