The Library's Commons was designed to be a "third place", where the community could gather and interact. Accordingly, it has a coffeehouse, where food and drink are available from opening until 5:00 pm. Food can be consumed anywhere on the Lower Level except the Fine Arts Center. Drinks can be carried anywhere in the building except the Fine Arts Center.
Items for sale vary but include three varieties of coffee from Just Coffee, pastries, cookies, muffins, sandwiches, pizza, soda, slushies, iced coffee and other snacks.
