Firefly Coffeehouse & Artisan Cheese in downtown Oregon will kick off the 2020 Oregon Public Library Fundraising Campaign on Valentine's Day, donating 50 percent of all sales to help break ground on a new community library in 2021.
More than $1 million to build a new library has already been raised, with an overall goal of raising $4 million. The "Love Your Library" Valentine's Day event at Firefly Coffeehouse will kick off the official public phase of the campaign.
In a surprise announcement today, Oregon Community Bank said it will match Firefly Coffeehouse's donation, dollar for dollar, and the 18 employees of Firefly Coffeehouse said they will donate all cash tips to the cause.
The Valentine's Day "Love Your Library" event at Firefly Coffeehouse includes free storytimes for children at 10 am, 11 am, Noon and 1 pm in the kids' play area. Children can also write and decorate love letters to the library, and put them in a special mailbox to be delivered directly to the Oregon Public Library.
Firefly Coffeehouse is open 6 am to 8 pm on Valentine's Day, with a free Open Mic Music event starting at 6 pm. Specials all day include $1 kids' hot chocolates and artisan cheese boards for two, including two glasses of wine, for $15.
