The Library Cafe
The library's cafe began at Bedford Central Library in May 2008. Over the next six months, the cafe grew in popularity and was deemed a success. As a result, in January 2009, the cafe was expanded to Forest Library and again in November of 2011 to Moneta/Smith Mountain Lake Library.
When it began, the cafe offered only hot drinks and few snacks. Today, each cafe location contains an assortment of hot and cold beverages, kid-friendly snacks, crackers, nuts, and pastries.
