  • This library is free to enter and all you need to do is to get your bag checked. The headphones are 1 dollar each for he computers. You have to have a New York public library card to use the computers. But the computers are free to use. Tu necessites reservar to use the computer. The staff is very nice and the library is very quiet and helpful. The library cafe is called Amy’s bread cafes it’s a small kiosk which has pastries coffee lunches like soup and sandwiches and chips. My favorite chip is the zesty jalapeño chips and a mini snickerdoodle cookie! 🍪 the floors are clean and it smells good. There is big balcony at the cafe area. Lincoln public library is close to the Columbus circle subway.
  • Nice vibe but often too many crazy old freaks being too loud and obnoxious Millineals with their coffees and tech pretending to write the next great novel. I finally checked out and got a small office
