Now open in the Montgomery Library is Books and Beans. Books and Beans is a café and lounge area for stuents and the public to come and enjoy company with others or to get some studying done.
Books and Beans is located on the right side of the Montgomery Library. There are places to sit and relax as well as computers.
Books and Beans is currently open during the Montgomery Library’s regular hours, Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Sunday 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Hours are subject to change upon completion of the café. Currently Books and Beans has an out door patio area open as well as a common area in the library.
Books and Beans will have food and drinks available in the future. Monte Veatch, Director of Food Services, said, “We will be serving grab-and-go food like a convenient store would. “
Some of the food Veatch mentioned included potato chips, smoothies, soft drinks, candy and possibly some cold wraps. The library café will also be serving hot tea and Hardens coffee.
Veatch said that he thinks everyone will react positively to the café. He is hoping it will give students, and especially commuters, a place to go between classes to study or catch up with friends without having to drive home or go to a dorm room.
“Not only is Books and Beans a great addition to campus life but it also enhances the beauty of what is already a great atmosphere,” said Morgan Cubert, a sophomore at Campbellsville University.
“It looks appealing to the public and catches the eye of people looking to attend CU.”
Many students have seen the outdoor patio and think it is a great edition and a perfect place to enjoy the Kentucky weather.
