The Coffee Lounge provides the opportunity to sit and chat over a cup of tea, coffee, or whatever your taste, and if tempted a slice of homemade cake. The friendly environment is a life line for some of the Lounge's visitors, in some cases the only company regularly available to them. The volunteers provide a professional service, not disliking a chat themselves!
For others it's a practical solution in the middle of a shopping trip and with the new library outside of the entrance an opportunity to start a book that's just been borrowed.
