Cafes Nearby

Where did the Library
Coffee Cart go?


The Town’s five-year contract with Los Gatos Roasting Company to operate a the coffee cart in the Library ended on June 30, 2017. In anticipation of the end of the lease, a Request for Proposals (RFP) was distributed in April to a number of potential vendors including Los Gatos Roasting Company.
 
The owner of Los Gatos Roasting Company informed the Town that they were not interested in continuing the concession, because although the coffee cart had generated good will for the company it was not generating enough income to continue the service.
 
Unfortunately, the Town received no responses to the RFP.  A flyer listing several nearby cafes and coffee houses is available in the Library and patrons continue to be allowed to bring in food and drinks.

Summer is here and so is the heat!


Summer is upon us and while we enjoy all that our beautiful Town has to offer this summer, please remember some of the following hot weather precautions:

  • Drink more water than usual.

  • Wear a hat and light-colored clothing when you go out.

  • Help kids and the elderly stay cool.

  • Help pets find a cool spot and provide extra water.

  • During the hottest hours of the day, avoid strenuous activities and stay in air-conditioned  buildings.

  • Remember to never leave pets or kids in a parked car! 

 
If you have family members or neighbors who may need a place to cool down this summer, our Library is a wonderful place to relax and read and beat the heat:
