Chokolato @ the Library

Great little find for travelers! Located inside one of the coolest and best equipped libraries I have ever come across- referred to as "the living room of Palmerston North". Free library Wifi, muffins & sandwiches 50% off after 3pm, handmade gelato, and lots of natural sunlight. Staff are friendly too! If you need anything printed, scanned, emailed, etc. the library staff are near-by. There is also a fantastic NZ newspaper section free for all to read at the entrance. Notice board of local events featured as well.

This was once a stylish cafe with a full kitchen, 5-grain sourdough, and clean modern lines so the suggestion that I meet someone there for a coffee was welcome.

Now, however, the kitchen is gone and the food offering restricted to plastic-wrapped sandwiches, and bought-in soups and cakes. It is operated by a single person who hasn't the time to clear tables, which are consequently grimy and piled with used cups. While some of the original furniture remains, it is slowly being replaced with pieces that are much less appealing.

Palmy library is a great place to visit and relax. This little cafe adds that little extra that makes the visit all the more pleasant (and the ice-cream is super yum!).
