A good place to focus
This library is located in Hegarmanah, an area of big houses quite far from main road of Setiabudhi. There is no wifi, so you can really focus on important things like reading some books and enjoy your evenings/days with some coffee and snacks. I work out my undergraduate thesis here. They also sell CD albums, contemporary books, and souvenirs made by local artists. You can rent the books and take them home, but you have to be a member first. The rental price is different for each book and their collection is quite large! You can find original copy of old novels of Bukowski, Kureishi, Kerouac, Plath... Indonesian literature books are also here, like Wiji Thukul, Nh. Dini, Putu Wijaya. Even books like architectural catalogs exist. The ambiance here is so peaceful, especially in the morning when it's not crowded. The outdoor is usually used for smokers. There would be occasions like movie screenings, mini concert, and book discussions. Just check out their website to know more about them: kineruku.com They consider themselves as library, so they would tell you to please keep your bags in the locker at the entrance and not to be too rowdy.

Good Place To Read and Chill With A Cup of Coffee
Great place to read rare books overseeing a green garden while a good coffee. The vintage-looking place is more of a small library than a cafe, although the snacks are pretty tasty, affordable too. One of my favorite place in Bandung to chill. Other than books, their CDs-for-rent collection is pretty good too. I've never seen so many Cocteau Twin albums in one place before! There are books and indie zine to buy, too and if you are into local art/culture scene, it's a good place for literary-shopping. Don't forget to check the vintage shop next door, too!
