"THANK YOU, OUR COFFEE SHOP" - Demolition of Main Library Coffee Shop

coffeeshopfarewell2012

Over the past decades, the Library Coffee Shop, situated at the iconic location at Sun Yat-sen Place, has been one of the most favourite spots on campus for gathering and having a coffee (tea) break among HKU members. It is a great place providing just the right atmosphere for us to chat and mingle with our fellows, friends, and teachers.  Most importantly, some of you may not be able to start 
the day without taking a sip of your favourite blend or just grab a warm muffin while passing by the Coffee Shop.  It is also a stop for us to recharge ourselves in the middle of the day before we carry on with our learning and working.  To many of us, daily visit(s) to the Library Coffee Shop is like part of our study and work life in the University.

In view of the development of the University on the Main campus, the Coffee Shop would soon be re-designated as part of the University Street.  Hence, we will soon have to say Goodbye to our beloved Coffee Shop. Before the Coffee Shop has accomplished its historical mission, let us all gather again and enjoy the great moment hanging around and mingle in the mist of coffee aroma, and say “thank you” to all the staff of the Coffee Shop in the Farewell Party scheduled as follows:

Date: June 7, 2012 (Thursday)
Time: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Venue: Sun Yat-sen Place
Activities: Free refreshment and Coffee, mingle with coffee shop staff, photo-taking, music sharing

All are welcome! Please call up your friends and fellows and join us! Besides, if you have any story to tell, or recall any memorable moment which happened at the Library Coffee Shop, please let us share with you by sending your stories and photos to cedars@hku.hk or drop it at our office at 3/F Meng Wah Complex (Attn: Mr. Sam Poon). I’m sure these will be great memories to the existing staff (partners) at the Coffee Shop too!!

After the demolition of the existing Coffee Shop in June 2012, a brand new Coffee Shop, incorporating with the Library's 24-hour Learning Centre, will soon be established in September 2012.  A Tender Exercise for selection of the new operator is going on in progress. Please stay tuned to our further update.

P.S.: Last date of business of Coffee Shop will be on June 8, 2012
Please note further announcement from CEDARS.
