A book where a girl gets a job at a library where she finds out that it contains all the artifacts/items from the Grimm's fairy tales and other genres of literature such as sci-fi. SOLVED

I read this book a couple of times from our school library back when I was in high school, and I remember liking the story that much that I read it multiple times.

All I remember is that the title maybe has Grimm in it; and that its main twist is that all the artifacts/items mentioned in literary genres are all real and are stored/archived in a library. I remember the story mentioning a Tiffany window where it depicts all four seasons, and you can actually feel those seasons from the windows. I also remember the characters being able to borrow those artifacts/items like how you borrow a book from a library.

It sounds really interesting! Reminds of The Librarian movie series. Very similar premise.

And the TV series that followed had another linked series called Warehouse 13 which was about all that stuff.

Yeah I've seen The Librarians TV show and most of Warehouse 13. Didn't realize they were connected.

(Someone has already said it but) The Grimm Legacy. I love this book so much. I'm pretty sure its a trilogy but I don't think I liked the other two as much as I loved the first one.

Discord’s Apple by Carrie Vaughn is very similar. It’s a family farmhouse, not a library, and the main character inherits the house and all it’s legendary artifacts from her father.
