As of March 2020, the Café is temporarily closed.

Enjoy a cup of coffee at our Library Café.

The Urbana Free Library Café and Friends Book Shop offers a wide range of beverages, featuring coffee and tea.

In 2006, the Library added coffee service for patrons and staff at the café, which also provides a location for the Friends of The Urbana Free Library to sell gently used books, A/V, and Library swag. Most importantly, the presence of the café allows the Library keep the historic Race Street entrance – an important connection to the downtown district –- accessible all hours the Library is open. Proceeds from the Friends Book Shop benefit the Library, and you can even shop the Friends Book Shop online 24/7.

Remember...when you support the café and Friends Book Shop, you support the Library.
