If you have a book in mind you can check the library's online catalog before you go, in most cases. If not I'd recommend the New York Public Library, being that it's the only one in Manhattan I know about that's open to everybody. You'd also be likely to find a lot of information at NYU's and Columbia's libraries. Is there any book you have in mind already?

It's alright. Here you go. These might have what you want.

The one in Union Square is really good. Never been to the others. I'm also pretty sure there's a B. Dalton at Penn Plaza as soon as you go outside by the main entrance for MSG.
