Unfortunately, our books are currently being transcribed into electronic format. The extras are being shipped to the Amenities Offices down the street. You might try there.

Kohl is the Chief Librarian of Vault City, in charge of the Information Office in Fallout 2.


Gentle-looking and soft-spoken, Kohl handles the distribution of written material throughout the city. However, he believes that his position is going to become redundant soon: The council is discussing installing access terminals in every household, hooked into the List Server and Information Archives, giving immediate information to every bit of information it stores. As all books in the city are being transcribed into an electronic format and the remainders shipped off to the Amenities Office, this young book worm is heart broken. [1]

  1. The Chosen One: "{117}{}{What is this place?}"
    Kohl: "{124}{}{This is the Information Center for Vault City. Is this the place you were looking for?}"
    The Chosen One: "{126}{}{Information Center? Do you have any books or manuals?}"
    Kohl: "{128}{}{Unfortunately, our books are currently being transcribed into electronic format. The extras are being shipped to the Amenities Offices down the street. You might try there.}"
    The Chosen One: "{130}{}{All the books are gone?}"
    Kohl: "{162}{}{Yes, well, everthing is being transcribed because... hmmm. This is a somewhat delicate matter, but I believe my post here in Vault City has become obsolete.}"
    The Chosen One: "{164}{}{Obsolete?}"
    Kohl: "{168}{}{They are discussing putting information terminals in every household. These new terminals would all be tied to the List Server and the Information Archives. Once that is done, the information center... and I... will be unnecessary. It's all for the best, really.}"
    The Chosen One: "{169}{}{Are you sure?}"
    Kohl: "{172}{}{Oh my, yes. The First Citizen is rarely wrong in such matters. Still, I will be sorry to leave this place. I heard they have a position waiting for me in the List Office.}"
