A Big Hello!

Welcome to Blackfen Community Library and Rooted Coffee House. Based in the heart of the Blackfen Community, we provide a home away from home for all our visitors. We are more than a library! Although we have thousands of books for you to browse and borrow, you can join in activities each week or sit and have a drink, snack, breakfast or lunch in Rooted Coffee House. Come for the books and stay for the community! We’d love to see you!
