The University is planning to build a coffee shop in the Goldfarb Library, according to Senior Vice President for Administration Mark Collins.
“We have done some preliminary work on this project,” said Director of Dining Services Aaron Bennos in an email to the Justice. “We are meeting with project managers and engineers this week. Hopefully if all goes well we could see a coffee shop in Goldfarb Library ready to open for fall semester.”
In an interview with the Justice, Collins said that the administration is “looking at a variety of locations in the Farber library.”
“No matter where you go these days, whether it’s libraries or book stores, there’s always some sort of café model blended in there. That’s our goal,” he added.
“I’m in favor of it as long as they think it’s a financially smart thing to do,” said Student Union President Herbie Rosen ’12 in an interview with the Justice. “I hope it offers different things,” he added.
Collins said that there is a “high likelihood” that the coffee shop will be ready for the fall.
