The Library

The Library
119 2nd St N Saint Petersburg, FL 33701

George Peabody believed in the power and importance of education in the lives of others. One of his many legacies is the George Peabody Library, an institute he built for and dedicated to, the citizens of Baltimore in 1857. Johns Hopkins was inspired by his close friend George Peabody to use his great wealth for the public good. The collaboration between these men and the institutions they created is the inspiration for our restaurant, located within Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.

At The Library, the familiar aroma of the coffee, the promise of a delicious meal, and the anticipation of friendly buzz will offer a reprieve from the daily chaos. Join us for morning coffee, weekday lunch and dinner, and weekend brunch!
