I didn't do anything to the rats encounter to make it memorable, but the libary encounter, with only a couple of additional Thought Stealers seems to be working out great.
The thought stealers can actually make for a challenging encounter if updated to MM3 standards, played tactically, and spread out. I agree that they don't require much modification.
What did you use for the 'home base' or friendly faction?
