Elizabeth sends crates of books from Michaela's deceased father's collection, prompting her to open a public library. Many become alarmed at the content of some of the books and want to prevent people from reading them.

The Reverend (and Jake) declare that the donated library books are unsuitable or spiritually unfit, and thus closes the library. The town goes into upheaval by book-burning, and then goes to church.
