Hint level 0

I went up to the librarian and queried, "Are these in English?"
"Of course they are," she irritably replied.

Hint level 1

"Yes, you'll need to translate what's on the page before you can read it."

Hint level 2

"You just said they were in English!"
"Go and reflect on your attempts, and if you still can't do it ask the librarian on the next rotation."

Hint level 3

I asked the next librarian, "Ok, I think I know what to do now... but how do I start?"
"May I refer you DUN - Ella Minnow Pea?"

Hint level 4

Before I could ask the librarian for some more advice, he proffered, "I believe the first line is about a brown fox? And the second about some liquor jugs?"
