Welcome to Java Wally’s Cafe at RIT Libraries

Library is much more than books ... it’s a place for the RIT community to gather, talk, connect, explore new ideas and more. In partnership with Java's on Gibbs Street in downtown Rochester, the library invites you in to enjoy fresh gourmet coffee (made with Java Joe's beans), tea, smoothies, lemonade and light snacks while relaxing in a casual, comfortable atmosphere.

Quick Facts:

  • We take TigerBucks.
  • Students, Alumni, Faculty and Staff
    can display their artwork on the walls.
