Cool Idea of the Day: Luxury Building Libraries

Some luxury building developers are adding a library "to the mix of common spaces where residents can gather or find a quiet corner away from their unit," the Washington Post reported, adding that while some buildings include libraries with carefully selected books residents can borrow, others offer residents the benefits of a partnership with a bookstore.

For example, in partnership with New York City's Strand bookstore, developers of the rental building at 525 West 52nd St. "offer residents a library filled with books chosen by Strand staff members along with resident-only book signings, poetry readings, creative writing classes and a Strand-sponsored book club," the Post wrote.
