Help the Central Library Name Its New Cafe

In 2010 the Central Library underwent an extensive renovation that repurposed a number of spaces to address student, faculty, and alumni needs. Among those spaces is our new café, housed on the south end of the Library’s fourth floor. The adjoining wireless terrace, complete with covered tables and chairs, has a relaxing view of the Library Lawn. The café opened at the end of January to enthusiastic customers. It is open from 3 PM to ½ hour before closing on Sunday, and 11 AM to ½ hour before closing Monday thru Friday. The menu includes sandwiches, panini, salads, soups, plus desserts and various beverages. The café accepts the VU meal plan, meal money and cash. If you have questions about the café, just ask one of the café’s friendly staff or visit

Now we need your help. The Library is asking the Vanderbilt community to help us name Central Library’s new café. Vote here for your favorite. The link will be active until April 1. The winning name will be announced in our fall 2011 library newsletter, the Acorn Chronicle.
