The children are sad because the library is closed for repairs and they want to change their books and listen to storytime. Later, Annie and Clarabel are checked for lost property. They find a book and a tape player and when the Fat Controller puts them in the lost property cupboard, a load of books fall out. This gives Thomas an idea. All of the books are loaded onto Annie and Clarabel and Thomas picks up the librarian and the sad children in Annie. The Fat Controller then hands out storybooks to the children to read. And, in Clarabel, the librarian reads a story to the children.
