Recently, someone posted asking about the library on Washington Avenue.
Let's see... what to say about it? It reminds me a lot of the library I went to growing up -- kind of 1970s, small, kind of dark. I've found plenty to borrow by just stopping in -- the selection is not huge, but you can most certainly pick up a few things of interest. As long as you plan ahead, their selections don't really matter. Just get a NYC library card, and you may request books you want online! When available, the books will be sent to the library of your choice (for free!), and you just go pick them up.
Here's more info on the branch from the website:
As an adult, the idea of the library seems inconceivable -- free books? To borrow? Really? For free? Sweet.
Plus, I also saw this supercute cat outside:
