I am playing through the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I have completed the first dungeon and I'm looking for the way into the second, but it appears to be blocked by stone. I found a cave with an old man in it, and he says that in order to get into this second dungeon I must find the book of Mudora, which should be located in the house of books.

Where is the book of Mudora? Where is the house of books?

The Book of Mudora is in the library just south of Kakariko village. It's on top of a book shelf that you have to use your Peagus Boots to slam into. After ramming into the book shelf, the book falls off and you can grab it. Here's a video showing this:

Here's an image showing it. It's number 15:
