Coffee & Conversation

Join DCPL customers and staff for coffee, conversation, and sometimes even a craft on the second and fourth Fridays of each month.   Coffee & Conversation brings together customers from all walks of life in informal conversation focused on relevant and engaging topics discussed over a cup of coffee.  Through this exchange of ideas, Coffee & Conversation promotes the library as a place to meet your neighbors and focuses on what people have in common rather than their differences.  Please join us!
