# Libraries

You can separate content in different libraries, a library is a group of books. Libraries access can also be restricted to specific users.

Each library has a root folder, and no library can share any part of their path.

For example if you have a library with a root path of /books/mangas, you can't create a library with a root path of /books, because the two root paths would overlap. You can however create a library with a root path of /books/comics.

If you change the path for a parent directory of the current path, you will not lose your content.

If you change the path for a child directory of the current path, you will lose part of your content.
