Coffee shop now open at the main library
Do you smell that? It’s the wonderful aroma of freshly brewed coffee and it is once again wafting through the Delaware County District Library’s Main Branch, located at 84 E. Winter St. That’s right — the coffee shop in the library has once again opened, under new management.
Café Boaz serves delicious Crimson Cup coffee, brewed to perfection. You can get a variety of flavor shots added to your cup, too. They also offer specialty coffee drinks, such as vanilla latte, cafe mocha, white mocha, cafe latte, cappuccinos and iced coffee drinks, too.
If you’d prefer a coffee alternative, how about a hot chocolate freeze or a fruit smoothie? Chai latte or flavored teas are also on the menu, along with juice, pop, bottle water and an array of snacks.
Café Boaz is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
Remember: Drinks with lids are permitted in the library, so stop by Café Boaz today, pick up something yummy to drink, and then relax with a good book in one of the comfy spots in the library.
