they had a book I have been looking for, for years! glad I finally found it. I will go there if I am looking for something hard to find.
I LOVE Midtown Scholar!! It's a unique building, smells like old books should, has free wifi, and just the right amount of scholarly activity. The coffee, teas, pastries and yogurts are great too!Book-wise, it has a great selection, a large section of books on local histories and issues, very obscure books, and a ton of young adult books and children's books by local authors. This place is definitely a browser paradise. My only criticism is that the sections can be a little difficult to navigate or challenging to find a specific book.
