You could easily spend hours here, wandering among the numerous wooden lofts and mezzanines piled high with books (more than 150,000 titles in all). The welcoming space—a historic brick warehouse—has wooden floors that squeak as you walk and an underground café that brews strong coffee and attracts local intellectuals. The event calendar is extensive—typically two or three author readings per day—so check online before you visit to see if anything strikes your fancy.
