The library is excited to welcome Teardrop at the Library to its café space! Earlier this year, the library issued a Request for Proposal for its café space and was lucky to receive several qualified applicants. After reviewing and discussing the submissions, the New Lenox Public Library District Board of Trustees selected Gina's Teardrop Café. The quality of the proposal, the history of success of the Teardrop Café on Laraway (including being named the Chamber of Commerce’s 2019 Business of the Year), and Gina’s investment in the New Lenox community were determining factors in selecting the newest café licensee.
Along with the rest of the library building, the café is currently closed until further notice. Improvements to the space are being made and the café will be starting curbside services in early July.
