Help me find a quiet place in Brooklyn/ Manhattan to read and write.

I used to go to the Poets House reading room in Soho-- wonderful, quiet, natural light, big tables-- but it's closed until November. Any recommendations for other reading rooms/libraries/quiet places where one can read and write?
Coffee shops are too noisy for me. The main reading room in the NYPL on 42nd St. is filled with echoes and electronic beeps.
There must be somewhere I can work undisturbed in the city! Ideally: smallish, natural light, tables, extreme quiet. Thanks!
