I think libraries are the rarest find in a stronghold. Its quite possible there isn't one in the three Strongholds you've found but try the X-ray glitch. There may be more than what meets the eye.
I'm secretly stupid. But don't tell anyone.

Yep, several, they can take a while to find most times, persevere and you will eventually find one.   Posted Image

Strangely in two different worlds we were digging stairs down and ran into the library sections. Fortunate place to run into a stronghold as it makes for a nice base camp.

I would keep looking around or maybe write down you seed number and create a new game in creative with that seed and explore all over that stronghold and around it.

There are no stronghold chests in Xbox as of yet, but they'll be implemented in the next update.

As for the libraries, they're nothing special, but I do know a seed that has a stronghold almost right near the spawn with a library. There's a YouTube video of it. The seed is  blargensnarf and the library isn't too hard to find.

Yes there is. In the places with wood on top and a ladder, there's a chest there.

It's true.  I've found chests in the libraries, in the strongholds.  Though their contents usually suck, abandoned mineshaft chests are awesome.

I haven't found a stronghold either but I do know that they are underground and made of stonebricks.
I put my shirt on one leg at a time, just like everybody else.

Chests generate on the top of the library on the balcony. Look on top of the books on the balcony.

Yea that is a mineshaft Strongholds a massive underground fortress type places. They are made from stone brick, cracked stone brick and mossy stone that have a chance of containing a silver fish inside. Also alot of iron bars and iron doors woth looting.

Yes there is I found one with a chest on the belcony but have not been able to really check it out as it spawned over a ravine making searching it quite difficult.

Yeah do not underestimate the size of a stronghold. If you search the wiki you will find pictures of "floating" strongholds that will give you a good idea of their general layout. I've begun extracting mine from the rock and ...damn... its huge.

A stronghold can even have multiple libraries. Mine has two... well, they were libraries, until I converted them. One became a living area, the other a club/bar.

What is the seed that you found those two libraries in, please?

My seed I have playing on 541612512

Has a HUGE stronghold in a ravine
it has a ---LIBRARY--- with two chests in it at

X: 112  Y:41  Z: -63

nothing special in the chests, I assume all library chests have books and paper in them.
