Lending Library

Crossroads Roxborough occupies a shoestore with an addition that was built in 1927.  These days the first floor is the dining room and upstairs is a lending library.  Our estimated capacity for books is around 8,000.  Currently we have 700 on display.  The library is an honor system: take one leave one.  We accept donations , however textbooks and magazines generally contain dated text which is not as readable as classics, children’s books, and cookbooks.  The photo below shows an early copy of Joy of Cooking, Twentieth Century Authors, and Paris in a Basket.

About michael

I began my professional food career at 26. I am the son of Michael and Amelia Loughlin who opened the roxborough location in 2006. I seek creative yet simply prepared menu options. I personally brought the art of bread baking to crossroads through a friend of mine.
