This is not true. I currently have a guild building which needs one more book and a secondary school building which needs 2 more, none are at the town square and i'm kinda stuck as to what to do next for them. has anyone figured it out?
I had the same problem. Over and over. 2 on the map, every time I build a building that needs any the town square puts out 1 more. Which leaves me with 5 every single time >.< 1 Short for the guild hall this time, last time it was secondary school. . . . Gah

I'm not sure if this'll be helpful for much of anyone, but for the longest I had only found two books. However, after some strip mining of the rocks right next to the town square a third book popped up.
So, yeah, Strip away resources and see what pops up.
I searched high and low for books in two separate instances and both times I found the cursed thing sitting in the town square as I was walking back into town in defeat. Just keep a really close eye on the town square.
