Actually this is quite a straighforward puzzle (although very large, so it takes some time to work through). The only problematic clue is no. 20 "Pamela and her husband borrowed the book that Mr and Mrs Zajac brought". The only thing you can deduce from this clue immediately is that Pamela is not Mrs Zajac. Once you have filled in all the other clues you then can see that The Seadog is the only book that Pamela could have borrowed from the Zajacs.

I've got it! Woohoo!!! I feel my brain "refreshing". I can resolve the same riddle from time to time, once in a half of a year approx., when the logic and deduction chain is forgotten. And you try it like the first time. It's some kind of an exercise for your brain.

I'd just like to share my approach to solving these riddles; I basically make a table for each connection given and then just eliminate
the illogical connections in my main tables. I've attached a screenshot of what I've done for this one.

I suppose this is the ordinary way of doing these riddles, only that I did it on a computer instead of paper or in my head supercomputer style :).
