Mac player. I own all the packs. Latest update installed. Problem started after the backpack/lunchbox drop. 

 

If you have a Library or any lot with a formerly decorative backpack on the lot, Sims cannot put books away. Removing the backpack fixes the problem. You may have to reset the book(s).

This can happen on any lot with a formerly decorative backpack.

Re: Sims cannot return books to bookcases

Backpacks are great for storing things but having one in your lot won’t prevent your Sim from putting books away on the shelves. Leaves more room in your backpack for important things like snacks.

Fixed in Patch 1.102.190/1.82

 

Please create a new thread if you're still experiencing this issue,

Re: New backpacks prevent Library books from being put away

Just to avoid any confusion: My problem is strictly about putting books away into bookshelves.

 

It has nothing to do with putting books into backpacks.

 

A backpack on the lot prevents putting books away by played Sims, unplayed Sims or a Librarian. Removing the backpacks from the Lot fixes the problem.

 

I made a separate thread because I figured folks who have the formerly decorative backpacks on their lots would be wondering why their Sims couldn't put the books away. Standard smile

Just tested - I’m seeing this too. Place a backpack in the corner of the library, and the librarian who had been putting books away puts down the book they just picked up. Then picks it up and puts it down a few more times before giving up. My controlled sim gets a routing error when told to put books away.

Sims can't put back books in the library.

Sims can access the library to read books but can't access it to put them away. Same thing for my sims or npc sims..
