Tiny Café

Three people sit at a table with coffee and a laptop. The sign reads, Tiny Café: free coffee and snacks for 10 minutes of your time

Tiny Café invites our library users to get more involved with shaping library services and resources. During this pop-up event, we ask patrons to spend five to ten minutes answering usability questions or completing monitored tasks in exchange for free snacks and beverages. We have not been able to hold Tiny Café sessions during the pandemic; we look forward to bringing them back.

Tiny Café is an idea we have enthusiastically borrowed from the University of Arizona Libraries, who borrowed it from the University of Houston Libraries and from Penn State University Libraries.
