Libraries Are Becoming Homeless Shelters

I've always seen libraries here in NYC harbor homeless people during the day but this article leads one to believe it will only get worse. The Borders near my job where I go to read always has people taking naps, carrying 8 assorted bags, and eating sandwiches hunched over. I'm sure they do a massive job corraling these people out of the store but folks always seem to be hanging around. Not that I should talk, although I bring only myself into the premises. Take a look at this article from the NY Times that looks into the taxing of the library system with people in need.
