E-Town Public Library Plans World Cafe Day With Events

The Elizabethtown Public Library will celebrate coffees, kids, and cultures from around the globe on World Cafe Day, Saturday, April 6.

Throughout the day, the community can participate in a variety of pop-up crafts and games, each representing a different country, and sample coffee from a variety of countries. Occasions Disc Jockeys will be on hand in the Elizabethtown Coffee Company for a special live version of “Family Face-Off ” (similar to the TV game show “Family Feud”), and several local organizations will share their connections to the world beyond Elizabethtown. Sock and Buskin, a theater group from Elizabethtown College, will do a scene from a Shakespeare comedy in the afternoon.

The day will also include walk-in passport services — no appointments are necessary. Customers are encouraged to call 717-367-7467 and speak to a passport agent prior to walking in to ensure they have all the proper forms and documentation necessary to apply for a passport.

“We love exploring the world and exposing people to other ideas so they can get an understanding of life outside Central Pennsylvania,” said Aimee Nelson, the lbrary’s team leader and organizer of World Cafe Day. “It’s important for all of us to be literate about our community and our world.”

Local organizations that will be taking part in World Cafe Day are St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, Stevens Hill Community Church, Elizabethtown

Grace Church and Amigos, Elizabethtown College’s Spanish club.

Except for Occasions DJ’s “Family Face-Off ” all activities will take place on the second floor of the library at 10 S. Market St, Elizabethtown.

Other community groups interested in participating in World Cafe Day can contact Aimee Nelson at 717-367-7467 or

All activities for World Café Day are free and open to the public. The library will accept donations to help defray costs. The library is an independent nonprofit organization.
