A community library visitor comment started the initiative to offer selfserve tea and coffee in the library foyer. For a donation however large or small, visitors can help themselves to a lovely cup of English Breakfast tea or a Tassimo coffee. Cups are heatproof and provided with lids to carry around safely – or you can bring your own mug.

“We already know the library is warm and welcoming – this just adds to the ease and comfort of the visit” says Donika Grundey a local young mum who visits the library a lot

Warlingham Parish Council has provided the Tassimmo machine and Coffee at 412 have kindly provided the vacuum flask for hot water for tea.

The offer will be trailed to the end November and will be available through library opening times except for a half an hour pause during our free weekly rhymetimes on Friday mornings [11.15-11.45]. “We hope there will be a lot of use so we can carry on the initiative which allows people to simply help themselves just as they check their own book in and out” says Cllr Keith Prew, Chair of the Library Working Group.

Please note: the library has a disabled toilet and changing facility for visitors
