The Sims 3
Libraries attract Sims with either the genius, bookworm, computer whiz, no sense of humor or hates the outdoors traits. Sims in the journalism career are encouraged to visit the lot. Sims that have the couch potato trait will be repelled. Libraries allow Sims to bring their toddlers to the lot.
Libraries contain all the books available in the home world, with the exception of recipes, bait guides, guitar compositions, and books from every destination. If a Sim writes a novel, then it will appear in the library once it is published. This may not apply to flops.[confirmation needed] Libraries also contain computers.
Libraries encourage Sims to build the writing skill. Sims with a writing skill of 3 or greater will receive an opportunity to donate books they have written to city hall, which will make them available in libraries. Sims are also encouraged to do their homework on the lot.

In "My Library"
- There is no proper library in Aurora Skies. Instead, there's a community lot Lend and Learn Library, but it's assigned as No Visitors Allowed. It's probably a mistake by the developers.
- The library in Sims University is a shell building. Even though there appears to be many doors on the building, only one is a valid entrance to the shell.
- The library of Twinbrook seems to be missing skill books.
