Librarian Wendy Juniper gave a thumb-up to
an idea that has been kicking around for a little while:
a café in Reeves Library.
In an article in the October issue of The One-Person
Library, a newsletter about library management, she
says: “We allow covered drink containers and no food
in our library. However, we gave out candy to people studying
in the library during finals week, and we agree that we are
not going to spend our time as food police.
I believe the library should be a very welcoming community
place, and the damage [that could be] done to our collection
is minimal compared to the benefits we reap from having our
community feel comfortable spending long periods of time here.”
