The Prufrock library was the library which the Baudelaires and the Quagmires went to in The Austere Academy. In the TV series, it is managed by the librarian Olivia Caliban. Due to budget cuts, the library is outdated.
The library is described as being very beautiful in the books, as Lemony Snicket says:
"It would be useless for me to tell you all about the brass lamps in the shapes of different fish, or the bright blue curtains that rippled like water as a breeze came in from the window. . ."
In the TV series, the library looks like libraries in the 1990's.
The books the library has include:
- The Incomplete History of Treachery
- The Incomplete History of Pretentiousness
- The Incomplete History of History
- The Incomplete History of Secret Organizations (new addition)
- The History of Lucky Smells Lumbermill
- A book talking about how to dry up fungus
