Library set for next Cafe

Published 5:39pm Tuesday, April 29, 2014

The Selma-Dallas County Public Library will be hosting another Courtyard Café Thursday, May 8 for Selmians seeking a quick, hearty meal and a first hand look at local fashions.

The event will feature clothing and other items available at Selma’s Allez-Oup boutique, and librarian Jan Parker said Friday that space was becoming limited.

“People really need to call quick because we don’t want anybody to get left out,” Parker said. “I feel sure we are going to fill up. I have no doubt. I think this event has made a name for itself and we’ve had a lot of people saying they wish they could change their schedules to get here.”

With no more than 34 of the $8 event tickets will be sold, Parker said only 8 remained as of Friday afternoon.

Speaking with the Times-Journal earlier this month, library executive director Becky Nichols said the Courtyard Café is part of a larger push by the library staff to not only bring the community together, but to also increase their awareness of the locally owned and operated stores that lines the streets of Selma.

“This is about our Sensational Selma effort to get people excited about downtown Selma and the shops and restaurants here in town,” Nichols said. “They’ll actually be bring their items with them, and they will be for sale, and this will let people get to know the store.”

The Courtyard Café event will take place in the courtyard at the library from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 8 and will be catered by Elodie.
