The Library Secret is a Secret from Oracle of Seasons used within Oracle of Ages. Link will first need to complete Oracle of Ages and start a Linked Game record of Oracle of Seasons.

Learn the Secret

After helping the Piratians get their ship out of Subrosia, head directly north of the dock on the Western Coast and enter the house. Inside is a harmless Ghini who will reveal his "regret" to Link. The Ghini tells of once working at the Eyeglass Library in Labrynna where he learned a secret so terrible that it resulted in him becoming the form he now assumes. He requests that, in order to "set it right", Link listen to his secret.[1][2]

Tell the Secret

In Labrynna, head to the Eyeglass Library in the Past and tell the secret to the Old Man in the main back room. He will question how Link learned the library-exclusive secret and offer a Shield upgrade to not tell anyone.[3][4]


If Link has the L-1 Wooden Shield, he will obtain the L-2 Iron Shield. If he has already upgraded to the L-2 Iron Shield, Link will receive the famous L-3 Mirror Shield, the strongest shield in the game.


  1. "I worked in library in Labrynna long time ago. Just because I hear secret, I become this... To set it right, I want you to hear secret. Hear my secret! You understand? :›Yes ›No" — Ghini, Oracle of Seasons.
  2. "This very, very old story..." — Ghini, Oracle of Seasons.
  3. "Why do you know that secret? That secret is only for this library. Do not tell anyone. I offer this for your silence!" — Librarian, Oracle of Seasons.
  4. "This is the secret to the shield in Holodrum, too. Come back if you forget the secret! Don't let the secret out!" — Librarian, Oracle of Seasons.
