Welcome to the Library–the only library in town where drinks are served and conversation is encouraged!


The Library as an Event Space

Reserve tables for 6-22 people, or rent out the entire space for your next bridal shower, diaper party,  networking social, or graduation celebration! We can offer you anything from McMahon’s menu or create a custom menu to fit your event! Call us today about setting it


The Library as a Co-Working Space

The Library, not unlike your typical library, is a place for the meeting of the minds. A place for people to go when they need resources or a space to work. The difference? We encourage conversation and community, and the resources are you!

Collaborate and network with the other “librarians” and help each other grow your business minds! It’s the perfect spot for work-from-homers, students with an entrepreneurial spirit, executives pursuing further education to grow their careers, and startups!

We’ll have everything you might need for a conducive work space–paper, writing utensils, printer, copier, scanner, fax machine, stapler, hole punch, sticky notes, paper clips, and drip coffee!  And the perfect atmosphere for your next event, whatever it might be! Call us about utilizing the Library today!

“Libraries were full of ideas – perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”

– Sarah J. Maas,
NYT Bestselling Author
