The Library at NoRa

Maybe not exactly the New York Public Library but we're proud of our new space for books, reading and hanging out.  Lovingly referred to as The Library at NoRa, this space is available for our patrons to reserve for meetings and events.  If your event is a community group event or for a charity or non-profit organization, we will be happy to promote it here on our site.  To request the Library, send your name, group, the event and date/time to and we'll follow-up with you.
