((It took embarrassingly long to make.))

Jaq takes look a through a doorway that probably once, a very long time ago, had a door into a smallish room that has another door opening to the main hallway.

Unlike on the first floor, there are clear signs that people have been in this room in the not to distant past in the form of piles of, what from a glance, looks to be garbage and graffiti scratched in the walls. Most of it is profane drawings but sometimes there are words written. Perhaps the most interesting thing beyond knowing that 'Hngir' and a half dozen others were here is that most of it is written in Dwarven.

Jaq will glance at the others and once he has at least one of theirs attention he will beckon them over with his hand and then he will move fully into the doorway and take a step in.
When they or someone follows inside, he will say not too loudly, "Well, looks like others have been here since the library has collapsed, but I don't know how long ago. And dwarves, so maybe they got in from some caves or something?"

Joe replies sadly, "Ya...it looks like whomever was here took a lot o books n left tha oth'rs ta rot." Joe looks in to try to read the dwarven runes.

Kroshav will stand rear-guard, keep an eye on the other two hallways.

Joe is easily able to read the dwarven profanities on the walls.

The trash isn't particularly ripe but there is still a hint of it in the air.

Joe snickers at the profanities. “Ah’m pretty sure this ainnae imp’rt’nt.”

(How long ago does it seem they were made?

Some of the scratches look kinda old and some look kinda new. On average it is hard to say, could be anything from a couple hundred years to a couple of months.

Jaq is ready to go to the next room, but he will wait for Joe to poke around in the room a bit, and then he will exit back through the door he came in from, and head west again.

Joe finds nothing more or interest beyond that Dregin is a poorly forged tool.

The next room is significantly larger than the previous room and looks to have been been inhabited in the not too distant past. It is largely empty aside from some bits of refuse but the north, east and west entrances to the room have been filled with dirt and stones.

Since there is no interest then she'll go to another room to search for anything interesting.

This room looks to have had some stone shelving as was found above but someone has hacked most of it away leaving only a few regularly spaced thinnish pillars remaining.

A wider survey of the room reveals where at least some of the shelves ended up, the room's three other entrances have been blocked up with their pieces.

((Everyone that went into the room can give me an... intelligence roll. Also one person can roll me a flat d20.))

Joe determines these people had no respect for ruins, breaking them like they did. She is so upset she doesn't really think about much else.

Jaq notices the work to remove the shelves and blocking of the doors was precisely done. The shelves' bases having been so cleanly cut that it is hard to see where they were and the doors are filled so expertly almost no cracks can be seen in them. Probably not a rush job.

"Whoever did they took their time and did a good job, they were probably down here a long time. But the problem is we have no idea how long ago. It could have maybe been before even my father was born!
Looks like we are going to have to explore another direction, nothing further this way."

"To have barricaded all but one door on these rooms, perhaps they were adapted for defensive positions? Or maybe just for separated rooms with some privacy?"
