STAX Coffee Ltd brings together life long learning and great coffee - a perfect match. Libraries are open and inclusive spaces and need to be progressive and adapt to the changing needs of community. A library is not just about great book stocks and electronic resource but an opportunity for social engagement and community life. A great coffee store allows the library to compete for free time, brings individuals and families into the library and keeps them in the library and engaged with library services for longer.
Stax Coffee, in partnership with Costa Coffee, means you can visit and support your library for the perfect cup of Costa Mocha Italia blend at the same time as enjoying free access to books, public access PC's, eBooks, newspapers, parent-child activities and so much more.
