Secret Libraries of New York City

As the debate continues over the renovation of the main branch of the New York Public Library — a design by Norman Foster that would radically overhaul the stacks and other features of the historic Beaux-Arts building — we are looking at some of the city’s less visible libraries.

From private clubs, to nonprofit societies, to pop up places right out in the streets, here are some of our favorite secret libraries of the city.

I’m tired, can’t think of anything and want only to lay my face in your lap, feel your hand on my head and remain like that through all eternity.

Owl Cafe: Because Owls are Flying Cats

Japan is known for it’s crazy, kooky fads. The social trends there cover almost any kind of interest (and any subset of that interest). So it’s no surprise that after making gaming cafes, cat cafes and even bunny cafes, the Japanese thought of a new adorable trend: owl cafes.

Over the past year, owl cafes have been springing up in Tokyo and Osaka… and they’re just as adorable as they sound.
