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.
