Special Containment Procedures

SCP-XXXX has been acquired by the SCP Foundation and designated as private property - all civilians attempting to enter are to be denied access and amnesticized as per standard protocol. SCP-XXXX-1 is to be allowed to create a monthly list of books it desires. All books requested by SCP-XXXX-1 are to be scanned for violent content - all scripts containing said material are to be disposed of.

In order to ensure the health of Foundation personnel present withing SCP-XXXX, all individuals reading books within it are strictly prohibited to examine books containing violent content - should a person find such an item, it is to be immediately reported and transported to Dr. Asheworth, project lead of SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX is a library, located in London, England. Though the building does not possess any external anomalous properties when an individual reads a book whilst within the space, the library changes its appearance and structure to correspond to the landscapes described within the examined object. Though the exact size of SCP-XXXX is currently not known, it is believed to be indefinite.

SCP-XXXX-1 is a level three ontokinetic being, capable of applying moderate changes to the reality around it. Though SCP-XXXX-1 can alter its physical properties1, through questioning it has been discovered that its true identity is Sarah Williams, a human female of British descent.

Though SCP-XXXX-1 cannot leave the premises of SCP-XXXX2, it is believed to be the creator of its anomalous properties.


SCP-XXXX-1 was discovered in SCP-XXXX on 29/11/1991, following multiple unidentified explosions noted within the proximity of the library. Further investigation into the source of said explosion lead to an investigation of buildings withing the proximity of the accident. Following entry to the library, Foundation agents encountered SCP-XXXX-1.

Addendum XXXX-2 - Event XXXX Librariam

On 01/01/1995, the following written message has been found near the entrance to SCP-XXXX-1.

I suppose I should begin by clearing some things up.


Looks like I haven't forgotten how to put memories into written text! How delightful! Then, please enjoy my first memory of the library.

Firstly - Yes, I have manipulated you a couple of times, as I have made some of you a bit more trustful towards me whilst within my "prison" so to speak. And I know I probably shouldn't have done that, but as you'll see in a bit, it's not like it's going to matter anyway.

Secondly - I'm leaving, and I'm not planning on coming back. It's been truly wonderful being with you, but now that I've assured that I will be remembered, I can finally rest. I know that a person's only goal being "being remembered" is probably narcissistic, but I don't want to die like that. I really don't. It's the most terrifying thing I can imagine - that someday, my influence on the world will vanish, just like that. But now, now that I am recorded within your archives, my influence will not be forgotten.

Thirdly - I'm taking the building with me. As it seems you wouldn't let anyone use it anyways, there is no need for me to make your work harder by leaving a library to guard behind. Maybe someday, in a world where knowledge and stories are cherished beyond anything else, it might come back. Maybe someday, someone like me will re-find it. Who knows?

Thank you, my dears. You were truly wonderful companions.

This whole containment period was truly the greatest story I have ever lived through.

Yours truly,

Sarah Williams
