Visitors to the Central Library will find there’s been an addition to the great resources and services already available: the javaNook Coffeehouse has added its hospitality to the Library’s amenities. The coffeehouse, located just outside the Library exit at 600 Soledad, opened on Tuesday, March 31.
Operated by owners/managers (and friends) Don Counts and Nancy Maladecki, javaNook is lending a unique touch to the popular coffee industry. Customers are likely to see others playing chess, discussing the featured artist on display, or visiting, rather than isolating themselves with their computers or headsets.
As a local small business, javaNook believes in offering the best to their customers and serves locally-roasted coffee at reasonable prices. The javaNook menu includes a variety of blended espresso drinks served hot, frosted or iced, spritzers, javaNook’s specialty Frosty Max and Maddi Blaster drinks, and other non-coffee beverages to please all tastes. Also available are snacks, sweets, sandwiches and other tasty coffee accompaniments.
Don and Nancy’s goal is to make javaNook “the neighborhood coffeehouse,” and in the future they plan to offer poetry readings, live music and extended evening hours. For now, the coffeehouse schedule shadows Central Library hours:
Monday - Thursday 7:00 a.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Friday 7:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Sunday 9:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
