Indian Libraries Look to Pair Coffee with Books

While I’ve seen lots of stories about coffee shops in US libraries, I was quite charmed by this op-ed piece from The Times of India. Apparently, urbanites in India are asking for comfy chairs and sipping privileges to go along with their book-browsing. My favorite phrase is “Caffeine and cerebral combo meal now tantalises in yuppie avatar especially if one is addicted to the aroma of coffee beans and crispness of fresh paper.”
