The library serves as a home base for a surprising number of homeless during the daytime. People bundled their belongings around with them and utilized the restrooms to wash up. Sylvia sat upstairs surrounded by books and her personal belongings. She spoke of a twin that she sometimes gets mistaken for. Beyond the need to eat, the main daytime need for the homeless is to find a safe place to pass the time where they can stay unbothered. The library also allowed them to have access to the internet, either through the library’s computers or their own devices.
