The national library of the United States, the Library of Congress, is like stepping into a picture. While this is also a museum of sorts, most people don't realize you can also study and work here! This is a research library, so take advantage of the librarians and the hundreds of thousands of documents and books in the library. It is just as quiet as a standard library, and there's even a hidden Dunkin' Donuts here! There are small study rooms and tables for you to work at.
Sometimes nothing beats working in a coffee shop. Breakfast is served here all day long, and the comforting aroma of coffee is always lingering in the air. This would be the perfect place to telework on those chilly Friday mornings. Pop in your headphones, get a fresh cup of coffee, and start typing. This is not a distracting environment, and you'll most likely find yourself working alongside others.
