Bon bini to BNK’s café. Allow us to enchant you with our local hospitality, inviting you to relax and take the time to enjoy our cozy and welcoming atmosphere.

As a library we are committed to being purveyors of information to the general public. This implies that we wish to feed their mind with nourishment that will make it grow. And naturally we want to feed their stomach with the nourishment that will sustain that growth. For this reason we offer many healthy options on our menu.

In the past five years we had been adhering to a certain format when it came to our café and we have now rebranded it into a theme that’s more in keeping with modern times. This includes lounge chairs, high tables and many other accessories, ornaments and furniture to make the visitor feel as comfortable as possible.
