There’s something new coming to the Coralville Public Library, and it pairs well with a good book: the Co-op Café is scheduled to open in February.
New Pioneer Food Co-op is bringing their famous sandwiches, pastries, soups, salads, smoothies, and beverages to the library—with gluten free, vegan, and paleo-friendly choices, just like in the Co-op stores. Events hosted at the library may now feature the Co-op’s catering. Co-op Café
