well, basically, you're calling a lot of methods that don't exist.

Don't know where to start......

by implementing the missing methods.

So far this is what I did can you help me with some errors?

The highlight with red are errors, what to do? Im looking for solutions.

are these included in your code?

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;

you made an obvious mistake here use // for comments

System.out.println();II Return The Lords of the Rings to the first library

include methods in your class

public static class Book {
public Book() {
}
}

addBook(and most of the others) method should be in the Book class

firstLibrary.addBook(new Book("The Da Vinci Code")); 
firstLibrary.addBook(new Book("Le Petit Prince")); 
firstLibrary.addBook(new Book("A Tale of Two Cities")); 
firstLibrary.addBook(new Book("The Lord of the Rings"));

Stultuske already corrected your errors before:

well, basically, you're calling a lot of methods that don't exist.
also, you're trying to create instances of Book with a String param, but as far as I know, your Book class doesn't have such a constructor.

make sure you create all the methods you're using, or you'll automatically get error messages during compilation.
