We are thrilled to introduce our newest product we’ll be showing off at ACRL and ALA annual - LibFoods.
LibFoods is an easy-to-assemble, pre-made, pre-stocked food popup store for libraries. It’s a convenient way for patrons - and librarians - to combine picking up books and picking up groceries at the same time. Because, you know, when you're hungry, you cannot (and, you really shouldn’t) eat books.
LibFoods also helps increase library revenue and will be a positive contributor to your library budgets from day one. It’s a great use of the library space at the “front-of-house” of the library.
Move over Amazon/WholeFoods - there’s a new sheriff in town when it comes to marrying the convenience of getting your favorite book while also shopping for your favorite foods - LibFoods - all at your local library branch. It doesn’t get any better, or any yummier, than this. A few hundred Whole Foods locations cannot compare with the reach of LibFoods and its availability at tens of thousands of local libraries and library branches. Game on, Jeff!

"I used to snack from a bag of chips that I hid under my study desk. Every time I went in for a chip the sound pierced the library silence, so I moved with such hesitation. LibFoods has brought delicious vibrant food into the library. Now, no one can keep their food a secret because everyone wants to see what you ordered!"
-- Seamus Nomore
"I love the way LibFoods integrates with my Library life. The other day I did an instant LibWizard survey on the shoppers all around me to see which toothpaste I should get. The next day, I saw a missed LibChat from LibFoods in my personal queue that had a coupon in it for the most popular floss!"
-- Miles McLafferty
You have to admit that this sounds very appetizing and we'd love for you to get a taste of what LibFoods is all about.
