 This chapter is going to give a brief overview of some of these libraries
 and how they are used.
+=head1 Loading and Using Libraries
+Libraries are precompiled code files that can be loaded into Parrot. There
+are ways to load a library into Parrot, each with a slightly different
+mechanism. The C<.loadlib> PIR directive causes the library file to be loaded
+at compile-time. The C<load_lib> obcode causes the library to be loaded
+dynamically at runtime.
 =head1 General Parrot Libraries
 =head2 F<Config.fpmc> Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
