Visitors to Campbelltown library will soon be able to enjoy a cup of coffee to accompany their reading.
Council has backed plans for a coffee shop at the HJ Daley Library, and also the civic centre in Queen Street.
A report to council for the July 29 meeting noted that a number of other councils, including Liverpool, had allowed privately run coffee shops to operate within council facilities such as libraries.
Council will also go ahead and enter into a licence agreement for the
provision of a coffee cart operation for a trial period of up to 12 months in order to
allow it to assess demand for café style operation within the ground floor
reception area or courtyard of the civic centre building.
