Libraries mentioned in Last Flag Flying:
p.117: "The Philadelphia-bound train pulls away. They are less than an hour from Newark, where Mule hopes to call his wife and find out if anyone has called the library, which is where Mule finds his reading material. He is too poor to afford to buy books."

p.158: "In a few minutes, they see Mule making his way back to them.
          "'How's things on the home front?'" Billy asks him. He gets off his stool to give Mule another boost onto his.
          "'She's not aware of anything. I told her to call the librarian and see if anybody is snooping into my reading habits.'"
          "'It's embarrassing,'" says Billy. "'To know agents are checking up on you. How far can they go with that shit, and for what?'"
