Rats in the Library is a storyline mission in Chapter 5.
Jimmy finds Earnest, Beatrice, Algie, Melvin and Cornelius are standing in front of the library, afraid to go in. The library has been infested with rats, and they blame Jimmy. Algie is angry because he has to study for his "pre-pre-pre med test" next week, and he misses the old days, when the Nerds were "...bullied mercilessly by everyone, but they could at least study in peace".
Just then, a rat runs out of the library and all the nerds jump on Jimmy. Algie pees himself to everyone's disgust. He tries to insist it's just spilled soda as Jimmy, disgusted, calls the Nerds pathetic and enters the library to kill the rats.
Jimmy has a time limit in which he has to kill 20 rats or fail the mission. Mrs. Carvin the librarian is standing on a desk, petrified, and asks him to kill them.
The most effective weapons for killing rats are the slingshot and stinkbombs. Surprisingly the stinkbombs kill any rat that gets within the radius. He fails the mission if he attacks Mrs. Carvin.
Mrs. Carvin tells Jimmy to checked the book crates that were delivered from Spencer Shipping Warehouse for more rats lurking there. He checks and finds that that is where they came from, but there aren't any left. She thanks him and agrees to waive any library fees he has acquired, which he sarcastically thanks her for.
- Once this mission becomes available, Algie will not appear in free roam again until the mission is completed.
- The mission was originally going to involve poisoning the rats. Several lines of dialogue were found in Mrs. Carvin's files ordering Jimmy to use the "rat poison gadget" and then complaining that the poison smelled bad and was making her feel ill and faint.
- The music which plays during the mission was originally the music for Final Showdown judging by its file name MS_FinalShowdonLow,MS_FinalShowdownMid and MS_FinalShowdownHigh.
