Study, Meet, Read, Relax

The Pulaski County Public Library has a variety of public spaces to meet your needs.  Whether that’s studying for school, meeting with others, or just finding a quiet spot to read and relax, we’ve got you covered.


The library’s Café/Lounge is open during regular hours for visitors to take a break or meet with colleagues over a drink or snack.  Coffee and tea are provided during the library’s weekly Coffee & Conversation program on Wednesdays.  At other times, you are welcome to bring your own drink.  This is the only public area of the library in which food is permitted.
