Stauf’s Coffee Roasters
 is ringing in the holiday season with a generous promotion benefiting the Grandview Library.

From December 5-15, Stauf’s will donate $5 of every pound of bulk coffee
—sold at its Grandview location and through mail order—to the Library.

“The Grandview Library is essential to our community,” said Stauf’s President Mark Swanson. “The resources available are amazing, the community programming is thoughtful, educational, insightful, and always fun. The library is staffed by some of the best people you will meet, and they have created a place that can really feel like home. We are big fans!”

Stauf’s has been a longtime supporter of the Library, from special event donations to Summer Reading Club prizes. As Stauf’s celebrates 25 years in business, Swanson wanted give back to the community through a donation to the Library, which celebrates its 90th year in 2014.

“Grandview Heights is truly a special place, and we have been successful because of this exceptional community.” Swanson said. “Amazing people, walkable streets, engaged government, civic and faith based institutions, a vibrant business community, and one of the best school systems in Ohio create a profound opportunity for a business to thrive.”

Stop in and grab some bulk coffee for yourself, friends, and holiday parties December 5-15 and support the Grandview Library. Thank you to Stauf’s for this wonderful gift!
