2008 год. The man in the yellow hat takes George for his very first visit to the library. George can't believe how many books there are and loads up a trolley with his favourites, but the trolley picks up speed and crashes – what a mess! With the help of the librarian and the other children, the books are all picked up and sorted out, and George is left with a small pile of his favourites. He is even given a new library card so that he can borrow some more when he visits again.
