Bookshelves are recurring Objects in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] Bookshelves go unnamed in The Minish Cap.

Location and Uses[]

The Minish Cap[]

There are numerous Bookshelves in buildings throughout Hyrule in The Minish Cap, particularly Houses in Hyrule Town.

Several Bookshelves can be found on both floors of the Royal Hyrule Library, one of which is home to Librari, Jotari, and another Library Minish. This Bookshelf can only be fully scaled while Link is Minish-sized and after he has returned all three overdue Library Books.

Breath of the Wild[]

Bookshelves can be found in the Hyrule Castle Library and obscure hidden passageways. As the Bookshelves are metallic, they can be moved with Magnesis. A Bookshelf on the eastern side of the Library covers a passage to the Docks, while a shelf on the western side blocks a flight of stairs that lead to a small excavation site.[2] A northern bookshelf also guards the entrance to the King's Study.
