The concept of creating a trendy and exquisite entertainment venue at the Pedagogical University encouraged a small group of young people bring to life the idea that seemed too risky at first sight.
On their initiative, a library-café with a fascinating view, exclusive menu, hospitable environment differing with its style and design was opened on the 5th floor of the University’s high campus.
This entertainment venue, which is a novelty in its nature in the higher educational system in Armenia, aims at not as much filling the hunger of its visitors, as creating comfortable and pleasant atmosphere for reading. The library- café has been able to form a group of its permanent visitors among both the teaching staff and the students.
Here, they can use professional literature and fiction over a cup of coffee or tea, as well as after taking delicious meals, they can discuss new ideas.
“Looks like the efforts of creating a warm and comfortable setting for the visitors has been successful. The library-café, with its menu, typical to the city’s best pass-time venues, stands out for its pricing policy; here, one can enjoy the quality coffee and tasty deserts without hitting much the pocket. Usually, the management of the library-café also treats those who didn’t initially plan to have a tasty meal parallel to reading”, mentioned Director Astghik Sargsyan in her interview to aspu.am.
Likewise, the latter assures that the main idea of the group was however to develop a new concept of a library that would make people come, get interested in the available literature, and why not, replenish it with new books on their own initiative.
