This Week's Menu for Tuesdays on the TerraceTuesdays on the Terrace
South Terrace Main PlantingLet’s do lunch – Tuesdays on the Terrace
will return to the David A. Howe Public Library this summer. Beginning Tuesday, July 9th residents will have the opportunity enjoy lunches served by several Wellsville and Allegany County restaurants. Simple “box lunch” meals will be sold between the hours of 11:00 am and 1:00 pm on the library’s South Terrace, which overlooks the Genesee River and Alma Hill.

Each Tuesday, the menu and pricing is different due to the fact a different restaurant or caterer will serve. The library provides menus one week prior to each Tuesday on its website, or at its Service Desks within the library. Residents can also call the library for information about this summer lunch program.

The library’s South Terrace underwent significant restoration in 2009 following more than forty years of closure. The new terrace features 16 umbrella tables and 64 comfortable seats that allow library patrons to eat, read, gather or access wireless Internet. The terrace also serves as a location for community functions and private events on the weekends between June and early September. A large central planting bed and several smaller perimeter planters provide a great ambience for eating and relaxing. The picturesque backdrop of the foothills surrounding Wellsville makes the terrace a unique experience.

Tuesdays on the Terrace is not a library fund-raiser. It is an opportunity for local businesses to showcase their culinary talents, and encourage community members to visit Wellsville’s historic downtown district and the library. In 2011, six restaurants participated over a series of six Tuesdays. The average number of lunches served each Tuesday was 90 within the two hours. In the event of rain, restaurants still serve on their scheduled date in the Reference Room on the library’s Main Floor.

This year’s program will run each Tuesday from July 9 until August 13. Local restaurants and caterers include Jones Memorial Hospital Food Services, Chelsea’s Catering, The Fountain Bistro, Black-Eyed Susan Acoustic Café, Brian Case Catering, and Pizza King & Sugar Daddy's.

For more information, residents may call the library at (585) 593-3410 or visit the library online at www.davidahowelibrary.org. The library may also be found online using Facebook, Twitter or Flickr. The David A. Howe Public Library is located at 155 North Main Street, Wellsville.
