Richard said, "a vague hunger would come over me for books, books that opened up new avenues of feeling and seeing… Again I would read and wonder as only the naïve and unlettered can read and wonder."

Richard is only able to enter the library with a note from a white co-worker (forged) stating that he need the librarian to give Richard some books for him. Note, Falk (his co-worker), does allow Richard to borrow his card.
