Most of our merry plans to celebrate our 95th Anniversary were cancelled by COVID, but, with a little help from our friends the Forest Lodge Library will celebrate, anyway. We hope you will join us in doing so!
A number of area restaurants will be offering a library-themed or library-dedicated special at some time during the month of August.
To join the celebration, pick up a game card at the library, or, give us a call, and we’ll be happy to send you one!
When you visit a participating restaurant and grab a library special, they’ll verify your purchase and you’ll accrue points for every stop. Bonus points if you send us a photo of yourself enjoying the special. Turn in your game card at the end of the month and the library will draw winners and award prizes, which will be gift certificates purchased from the participating restaurants. Win, win, win…and celebrate!
Here’s what we know so far about who is participating and what they’re offering and when it will be available.
The Brickhouse. 13458 Reynolds St. in downtown Cable, is offering both a breakfast and a luncheon special for all of August! Plus, they plan to donate $1 from each purchase TO the Forest Lodge Library!
Breakfast: A yogurt/fruit and granola bowl for $10.
Lunch: Flatbread pizza with feta, red onions, forest mushrooms and balsamic drizzle. Can we just say, SO YUMMY!
Open 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Call them at 715-798-5432.
The Velo Cafe. 13425 Cty Hwy M. in downtown Cafe. The Velo will offer their very delicious Compost Cookie as the library special. They had thought about changing its name for the occasion, but, then they read a definition of compost as “organic matter that is used to nurture and stimulate growth and development of plants. A library is a source of a different kind of matter that stimulates growth and development.” So true, so true! We, too, like the parallel.
Open 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Call them at 717-798-8356
The Cable Cafe The Cable Cafe. 43465 US Hwy 63. Grab a cookie! All cookies are library cookies in August.

The Library Creek Pizza will include potatoes, olive oil, Canadian bacon, carmelized onion, roasted red pepper, cheese and Wisconsin maple syrup, which is served on the side.Does that not sound amazing?
