The Library of Magic wants you to help retrieve its overdue library books. In this case, Hae Jakkya, the Mithra who runs the auction house in Windurst Woods, has checked out the book "A Song of Love," but has failed to return it by the due date.
The Optistery wants you to retrieve another overdue library book. You must have completed Early Bird Catches the Bookworm and zoned before obtaining this quest. Talk to Tosuka-Porika to start the quest. He says there is another book and to go talk to Furakku-Norakku.
Furakku-Norakku tells you that Hae Jakkya who runs the Windurst Woods Auction House has an overdue romance novel checked out.
Go talk to Hae Jakkya and she gets very mad. Talk to those around her and they make fun of her. Hae Jakkya says that it's not her and nothing else. Go back and talk to Furakku-Norakku and he checks the library card. When he reads it to you he says it clearly shows her name signing it. If you look closely at the name you will see that the spelling actually says Hae Jakhya, who is a Mithra in San d'Oria.
Travel to South San d'Oria and talk to Hae Jakhya who stands atop the battlements of the West Gate (G-9) and receive the overdue library book, A Song of Love. Return the book to Furakku-Norakku to complete the quest and get your reward of 2,800 gil.
This quest is part of a series of quests offered by the Optistery. See the list below to find out which quest comes next.

I never go without a mission active - as soon as I complete one, I beeline to Heaven's Tower for my next one.

All this for one map! Geez!

Just for those non-Windurstians who may wonder why they can't get that quest.

The most likely scenario for not being able to recieve a quest is you don't have enough fame, or haven't completed all of the prerequisites.
A less likely scenario is you didn't zone between quests.
And the least likely scenario is there actually is a bug.
when i talk to Tosuka-Porika i get this answer.
I wonder if that so called Cat Burglar really has one of our books.
When i talk to Furakky-Norakku he says Yeah, it sounds like a lot of trouble. So much of a hurry-scurry. I can hardly sleep.
I did complete the early bird cathches the
if anyoneknows what the prob. is, pls post!
[Name]? Hmm… Now, was that the name of the…? No, that was some other guy. Either way, you're still not making much of a name of yourself here yet. Hard work and Perserverence--that's what's going to put you on the map.
So I busted my gut on other quests, checking my fame regularly and checking for this quest regularly. The instant my fame notched up to the following message:
Oh, you're the [Name] that people are starting to talk about. I've heard pretty good things about you. Hard work and perserverence--those are the only things that'll put you on the map.
This Quest was finally offered to me (you have to speak to the dude in the corner, until then the clerk at the desk still gives you the what are you doing here routine)
- I ran there on chocobo and then ran right back and also only got 2800 Gil, which IMO is an awesome amount for a fetch quest where you dont have to fight anything or go into any dangerous areas.
- This is going to seem really minor but Hae Jekkya is not mad about you accusing her of checking out the book due to prudishness. If you read the dialog, she (and her nearby employees) talks in some type of irish brogue (or mabe cockney accent) and its clear that she is too butch to have checked out a froo-froo romance novel..
Someone try to do this quest as soon as possible and see if you actually get the full 4500 gils.
