I'm sure this has been discussed before, but here are some things I noticed when re-readings TAA.
1. There are brass lamps shaped like fish. In TEE, ocean decorating becomes in. Hmmm. 2. Lemony describes the library like he has sat and read there. "The hush of people reading..." (pg. 52) 3. He says "Freinds can make you feel the world is smaller and less sneaky that it really is" (p. 52) and "the world felt smaller and safer than it had in a long, long time" (p. 53) I think this is the earliest example of a variation of "the world is quiet here" that we have. And he says it in a library
And the library held old newspapers. This could be where the new collection of TDP's records are kept, instead of in Paltryville.

Well if i'm not mistaken in TMM the Library was empty and there was only a couple of books. I agree. I think the books were moved to the Prufrock Prepatory library, because if you don't recall in TUA there's a list of books the children were supposed to read for summer reading and they didn't because someone advised principal Nero, about them. Later on when I read the books I discovered the listed books contained clues. But who advised principal Nero about them?
For Beatrice -- Summer without you is as cold as winter. Winter without you is even colder.

The Prufrock Prep Library is definitely a haven for VFD. Doesn't TUA basically say that the librarian there is a member of VFD? I bet another reason Olaf kept the Baudelaires so busy running all the time was so they never had a chance to go to the library, in case they found some of the VFD documents hidden there, or the librarian had a chance to talk to them.
