Ladies and Gentlemen of the court, behind these frustratingly opaque sheets of plastic sits the new home of the Scribner Library Café. Workers in the Library and at Dining Services confirm that the new on-campus coffee shop is slated to open at the start of classes.
The new café, run by Dining Services and staffed initially by students, is still very much in the construction stages and occupies the space that formerly housed the library’s copy and fax machines (LOL 2004). At press time (I’ve always wanted to say that) the new space stands gutted and seems to be receiving the requisite plumbing and electric upgrades.
The new café will provide students with coffee and the further opportunity to stress about whether or not to make small talk with the people you kind of recognize while standing in line for a muffin.
