SHREWSBURY, NJ - The Monmouth County Library Commission regrets to announce that the Lion’s Den Café at the Eastern Branch Library in Shrewsbury will be closed until further notice.

In spite of efforts by the café vendor, the second floor café failed to attract enough patronage to be profitable.

When the Eastern Branch Library was reconstructed several years ago, the second floor area was remodeled to include a food area. It was first occupied by a vendor from the New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired; the Lion’s Den Café is the second occupant in the food service area.

The Library Commissioners are currently discussing options regarding the future of the café.
