In 2009, Cathy Thompson noticed the need for an upscale venue in Cape Girardeau. Her solution? The Library. Guests are welcomed by a fantastic, cozy atmosphere where they can enjoy a drink or grab a bite to eat all year round. During the Summer, enjoy our fabulous covered patio with a margarita, or challenge your friends to a game of volleyball in our sand pits. When the cold hits, warm up inside with your favorite drink while relaxing to live music. There are many choices of beer and spirits to choose from, along with a variety of appetizers and entrees. Chat with our bartenders who tend to treat our guests more like family. In 2014, Cathy continued to build her masterpiece. With a vision consisting of luxury, elegance, and sophistication, Cathy created The VIP Rooms of The Library. VIP Members are welcome throughout the week to come relax and indulge in our Wine Collection, or higher end liquors. These rooms are also available to rent for any type of family gathering, ladies night, anniversary celebration, or rehearsal dinner.
