The Library Kid is the fifteenth episode of the third season of Recess, which was first broadcast on January 22nd, 2000.


The Recess Gang investigates an urban legend. Is there a kid, known as the Library Kid, who stays in the library and does not come out to recess?


  • When Library Kid is shown entering kindergarten when she was in kindergarten (September 1993), the same kindergarteners from the show's main timeline (1997) are shown inside the kindergarten room.
  • When Library Kid is telling the kids of her origins, Vince's t-shirt is dark grey and the stripes are light grey.
  • When the gang and Library Kid arrive on the playground, T.J. is paler than usual.
  • When Gretchen pulls the fire alarm, T.J.'s jacket is mint green instead of green-grey.
  • When Gus and Mikey are first shown reading their books on the human heart, the books are blue. When Gretchen tells them that they need to stop Library Kid, Gus's book is red.
  • When Gretchen pulls the fire alarm and everybody rushes out, the flagpole on which the Library Kid was swinging is nowhere to be seen in the front of the school.
