Books and Beans: D.C. Libraries Need Cafés, Stat

Washington DC considers placing coffee shops in their public libraries as a source of revenue and increased foot traffic. There are already many different libraries that have had much success with their coffee shops and so it shouldn’t be an “if” question; Washington DC should jump on the bandwagon and allow its community to enjoy and make use of their public libraries more. A coffee shop is a great way to make the library a social place,a way to make it even more of a community center. It’s also a great way to work around the food restrictions within the library itself!
