The Pop-Up at Coy

What is The Pop-Up at Coy

The Pop-Up at Coy is a small activation space at the front of the library, adjacent to the main entrance. Originally the reception office, the space has served many other purposes over the years including the circulation desk, Friends Bookstore, and following a renovation in 2017, a Café. It is now ready for its next chapter as The Pop-Up at Coy.

Pop-ups are temporary spaces that can help promote your brand or idea, connect with consumers, drive sales, raise awareness, share a passion, or publicize a service or resource. Pop-ups allow customers to see, touch, experience, and learn about offerings and products. The space is great for non-profits, ecommerce businesses, home businesses, or those wishing to test a brick-and mortar space. 

Pop-ups are beneficial for everyone in our community. This space in downtown Westerly provides variety, additional attraction, and excitement for our patrons as well as a better visitor experience while supporting local community businesses/sellers and consumers.

The attractive, yet simple space offers water/sinks, a small refrigerator, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, heating, access to public restrooms, natural light, a locking door, and cabinets for storage and display. The area sees high traffic especially in the summer as well as during times when library programming and events occur.
