Keeps track of timed events during three days

The Bombers' Notebook is an important item that tracks many of the characters from Majora's Mask, along with their schedules. The Notebook details the times, days and locations of available side quests that Link can complete. The Notebook serves as a guide for solving the problems of the residents of Termina, which ultimately leads to finding many secrets, masks, upgrades, and unlocking cut-scenes at the end of the game.

The Notebook differs greatly between the Nintendo 64 and the Nintendo 3DS versions of the game. In the Nintendo 64 version, Link receives the Bombers' Notebook by entering the Bombers' Hideout and then exiting while in Hylian form. Link will be confronted by Jim, who will be impressed that Link knew the secret code. Jim will then award Link with the Bombers' Notebook. Link can also earn the Bombers' Notebook by playing 'Hide-n-Seek' with the Bombers for a second time, this time with Hylian Link. Upon receiving the Notebook, Link will earn a Happy Sticker for the Bombers' entry, signifying that there are no more quests involving the particular character. Link can access the Notebook within the start menu.

In the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, Link automatically receives the Bombers' Notebook after learning the Song of Healing. It is given to Link by the Happy Mask Salesman. The 3DS version has additional functionality, including a listing of Events. Events can be triggered by talking to various characters throughout Termina. The events are broken down into ongoing events and completed events. Furthermore, the actual Bombers themselves will run up to Link at various times in the game to talk with him. They will give him hints about the events, known as Rumored Events, that help guide Link to completing some of the various side quests.

The 3DS version still has a similar scheduling chart as the Nintendo 64 version, but that too also has some additional functionality. Link can create an alarm for a specific time of day to remind him when a particular side quest is set to take place.
