For the general environment, see Libraries.

The Forbidden Library is an upside down version of the Long Library in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. A blue, dreamy flavor now cascades over every room, giving this area a melancholy appeal. Twisted versions of characters from the pages of books contained in this library come to life, including the Wizard of Oz trio (Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Man), as well as the Schmoo, the enemy which drops the powerful Crissaegrim sword. There are no bosses in this area. The Forbidden Library is only accessible from the Reverse Outer Wall to the left.

The area is well-known for its excellent drops: the Muramasa, Fist of Tulkas, Crissaegrim and Mojo Mail are all found here. In addition, enemies in this area give excellent experience to Familiars.
