Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in a standard containment unit. A minimum of 14 books are to be kept in the containment unit. A D-class personnel is to restock SCP-XXXX with various books once per week.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a basic wooden bookshelf measuring (figure it out). Once per day at exactly 0000 hours a book on SCP-XXXX will disappear, with books disappearing in order from the bottom shelf up, from left to right.

If SCP-XXXX is damaged intentionally, the subject who damaged it will be physically forced to harm themselves in the same manner as they damaged SCP-XXXX (see Addendum 1). Any damage that is done to SCP-XXXX will be repaired within an hour. Personnel have described the area around SCP-XXXX feeling "cold" during the time after the damage is done, up until it repairs itself. Tests have displayed no change in temperature in the area during this time however.

If SCP-XXXX has no book remaining on it at 0000 hours, SCP-XXXX-1 will manifest. SCP-XXXX-1 is a translucent formless figure that is not impeded by any physical obstacles. SCP-XXXX-1 will proceed to wander within the containment unit of SCP-XXXX searching for books. If it finds a book, it will take it and place it on to SCP-XXXX before disappearing and returning SCP-XXXX to it's normal cycle. If SCP-XXXX-1 cannot find a book, it will wander beyond the containment unit and begin dismantling and observing any objects it finds, whether it be living or not (see Addendum 2). If it finds a book during this wander, it will take it and return it to SCP-XXXX before disappearing again. If given a book, it will thank whoever gave them the book in english and take it back to SCP-XXXX.

Addendum 1:
D-class personnel were originally used for restocking SCP-XXXX, however after Incident-XXXX-1 other various staff have begun being used for restocking. This is the interview done with D-3647 following Incident-XXXX-1:

Interviewed: D-3647
Interviewer: Dr.█████

<Begin Log>

Dr.█████: So 3647, why exactly did you damage SCP-XXXX?

D-3647: Screw off.

Dr.█████: Well, I suppose the better question to ask anyways is why did you carve your name in to your own arm?

(D-3647 shifts uncomfortably and takes a deep breath before answering)

D-3647: I… didn't mean to do that.

Dr.█████: I imagined as much considering your reaction in the footage of the incident. I need you to explain what caused you to do it.

D-3647: I don't know man! it was like something just grabbed on to my arm… and just… forced me to start cutting.

Dr.█████: Something grabbed you? There's nothing in the footage that could've done that.

D-3647: Well I sure as hell can tell you right now I ain't lying! It was like my whole arm was just kinda covered in a layer of… something. Once it was wrapped around it could just move my arm around however it wanted to. I couldn't get it off. Hell I couldn't even see what I was trying to get off.

Dr.█████:Alright that's enough for now.

<End Log>

Addendum 2:
Incident-XXXX-1-4: On ██/██/20██ Dr.█████ attempted communication with SCP-XXXX-1 during one of it's containment breaches. SCP-XXXX-1 did not respond to Dr.█████, but did hold interest in what he had to say. After Dr.█████'s third question, SCP-XXXX-1 proceeded to [REDACTED]. A book was placed on SCP-XXXX when SCP-XXXX-1 completed it's observations of the remains of Dr.█████ and it was re-contained.
