The Library is a way for you to raise your adult citizens' Intelligence skill, which influences all other skill increases (at other jobs). A citizen will randomly level up their Intelligence as long as they're assigned to the Library. Being a Library Student is their full-time job, so you can't have one citizen work at the Library and another worker hut at the same time.

Two citizens can study per Library level. So:

Building LevelCitizens Educated at a Time

Hint: Paper and books help Library Students increase their skills faster.
