It's raining outside as Daniel Tiger and his classmates are planning a field trip to the library. As they enjoy circle time, the ceiling of their classroom begins to leak. With a bucket in place to catch the dripping water, circle time is moved to the block corner of the classroom.

The rain stops but the class has missed Trolley which was their transportation to the library. Changing their plans, they decide to walk instead.

Daniel make-believes that the flowers outside the library are reading books.

Inside the library, fixing broken shelves is taking longer than expected so X the Owl has to cancel the class visit. Instead, the class returns to their classroom where they use their own books to make a library.
