Pikes Peak Library District’s Board of Trustees announced at its meeting that Her Story Café & Catering will be the new in-house café and catering vendor for Library 21c. Library 21c is PPLD’s new library slated to open to the public Saturday, June 21.
The board had previously announced that Ricoh would serve as an in-house full service print and copy center at the new library. Both entities will provide services to the general community as well.
Her Story Café & Catering owner Liz Rosenbaum started the business in 2010 to inspire people about women’s history – one bowl, one sandwich, and one smile at a time.
Now Her Story Café will have a location inside PPLD’s Library 21c to provide food for patrons and catering service to businesses and entrepreneurs who use the library space.
Her Story Café will also offer public and staff education classes about local farmers’ markets and incorporate a focus on 21st century education and learning. Executive Chef Ken Moore joined the partnership this year with a vast knowledge of large scale catering and food education for all ages.
Ricoh is an information and technology company with a strong legacy of introducing new technologies into the workplace.
Ricoh will serve as an in-house print and copy center to meet both the Library’s internal printing needs and the print needs of patrons and entrepreneurs who use the new facility.
