The New York Times reports that hotels all over the United States are adding libraries to their lobbies and bars. Designed as a means to generate revenue from patrons who spend more time in their restaurants and bars, hotels are stocking their shelves with hot titles from current authors. Some hotel libraries are even specializing, like the Renaissance hotel lobby in D.C., which boasts books about presidents and sports. (see picture in the article). As another example, the "Hyatt Magnificent Mile in Chicago completed a renovation that includes a bar stocked with books and magazines and a small number of computers." Some hotels are even creating lending libraries which allow guests to check out a book at one location and return it at another.
