Photo of the Day: Community Lending Library

Take one, leave one, start one!

Community Lending Library at Cafe Amrita

One of my favorite local New York City coffee shops, Cafe Amrita, is a great spot for eating, drinking, reading, and writing. Located near Columbia University on the Upper West Side, it draws a decidedly bookish crowd—in addition to the sports fans who come to watch international football. Weekends at Amrita are abuzz with caffeine and conversation; evenings are lit by the warm glow of laptops and tablets.

And there’s lots of books to peruse while you sip your latte!

Hope your neighborhood has a “take one, leave one” lending library, too. If it doesn’t, you can always start one . . .
