New Cedar Rapids library to have drive-up window for coffee

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The new Cedar Rapids library will have a drive-up window for customers to get coffee.

The city library board is allowing the library director to finalize a contract with the business Brewed Awakenings to open a shop inside the library.

The new $49 million library is being funded through several different outlets including an I-Jobs grant, federal disaster funds, and $4 million in revenue from the city's local option sales tax.

The library plans to lease space to Brewed Awakenings for more than $1,600 a month and use that money to fund continued operation of the library.

The library is scheduled to open in June 2013.
