    Hey builders!

    Now that we're on 1.15.1 we have lecterns, and they're pretty awesome. Have fun making awesome builds and fun designs with these.

    They're automatically protected when you place them. Others then cannot break and take them.

    But what if you want to place a book in them, or have others read it? What if there's already a book in the lectern, and if it's empty, can I place one? Here are all the combinations you can use:

    When you place it, it's locked, type: /unlock and hit the lectern, it's now publicly available.

    Note that if there's a book in a lectern and someone is able to break it, both the lectern and the book drop as item.

    When it's unlocked, and has no book:
    - Another player can break the lectern and take it. If someone placed a book in it, the book will drop as well. They can read any book in it, place any book in it, and take any book in it. It's literally public. It's best to keep a lectern locked.

    When it's unlocked, and has a book in it:
    - Another player can break the lectern and take it. If there's a book in it, they can read the book, and they can take the book. They can also replace the book with another book.

    When it's locked, and has no book:
    - Another player can not break the lectern, and they cannot place a book in it.

    When it's locked, and has a book in it:
    - Another player can not break the lectern, and they cannot place, read, or take any book in it.

    NOTE: If you have a locked lectern with a book in it, and you do not want others to read the book BUT you want just a friend to read it, you can type: /cmodify friendName and hit the lectern. This will add them to the access list. Please note that a friend can also take and (re)place books.

    When it's set-up as a donation lectern, and has no book:
    - Another player can not break the lectern, they can only donate a book to it (and not take a book out). They can also read the book. Those on the access list can take the book out as well.
    - To set-up a lectern as a donation lectern, first unlock it, and then type: /cdonation and hit the lectern.

    When it's set-up as a donation lectern, and has a book in it:
    - Another player can not break the lectern, and they cannot take the book from it or replace it. However, they can read the book.
    - To set-up a lectern as a donation lectern, first unlock it, and then type: /cdonation and hit the lectern.



    Using a lectern is a fun way to share books, or use it in mini games, or as a welcome book at your build area. Note that lecterns can behave differently when protected by a /here region that's not __global__ (so be sure to test).
