As a bookish sort, nothing makes me feel more at home than the smell of a library. When I began working at the New York Society Library a few years ago, I was immediately put at ease by the fact that it “smelled right”. It’s nice to know that others feel the same way. Indeed, it is now possible to buy ersatz library atmosphere in the form of perfume and candles, as my colleague Sara Holliday reported last year.
