Good idea. Ada’s Cafe at Mitchell Park Library and Community Center is such a valuable asset for all of us and it’s employees. It’s ongoing security is needed and this should do it.
Let’s all help make it happen!

If I had the money to do this for you, I would. Ada's is such a wonderful, unique community treasure.
