The Brick

Used Bookstore and WiFi Cafe

The Brick has plenty of space to sit and enjoy a quiet lunch or to plug in while sipping a soda.

Join us for lunch!

Pack a brown bag or pick up a tasty meal from one of Hennessey’s excellent cafes and enjoy lunch with us in the quiet of our WiFi cafe and used bookstore. Connect on the library’s wireless or enjoy a quick read, maybe even swap a title or two as you enjoy your indoor picnic. The Brick is open weekdays during Library hours.
