Thomastown residents can grab a cuppa and get to know other locals at a new coffee cart at Thomastown library.

The cart is the initiative of Thomastown Neighbourhood House, which is sited at the library.

Manager Justine Sless said she is always trying to think up ways to get people to meet, gather and chat.

“So many people come to the library for story times, neighbourhood house activities, the monthly indoor market, the maternal and child health nurse and homework program,” she said. “By having the coffee cart, people are more likely to stay, to chat and also enjoy the newly refurbished library space.

The cart is open most days.
