When was the last time you went to the library?

I recently moved to Daly City and have been going to the Mission in San Francisco to work – they have some wonderful cafes over there; I mostly go because I’d rather work from outside the house than drink coffee.

On the way back (I took the subway back) I noticed the a public library – it is only a ten minute walk from the house. So here I am, at the library today – it is fairly quiet but not eerily silent, there are others here working and studying – usually older folks, college students and a few kids off in the distance being kids.

The desks are excellent, just perfect for a laptop! There are lots of wall sockets, good Wifi, tons of books if you need a break. Since not many people use the library these days, there is plenty of empty space here – many empty desks – great place for a team. They also have meeting rooms. Oh, and did I mention that all of this is available for free?

    No food or coffee, random opening and closing hours, the tables are too high for ergonomic laptop use. Might as well code at home.

    LOL. Yeah – there’s definitely a trade-off. I take my own food / drink. Thankfully my library has well publicized hours of operation, which they adhere to.
