Cheap Dates in Ashland: Reading and ice cream

 Posted: 10:55 AM August 01, 2009

Ice cream and a good book make for a relaxing and cheap summer outing.

It probably doesn't matter much if you get your cool cream before or after stopping by the Ashland library to grab a book.

When was the last time you checked out the good stuff offered at the library?

Reading can be done virtually anywhere, though reading and driving is not recommended. Sit next to a stream, under a tree or in the comfort of your own home. Read the same book as a friend or partner and discover the conversations to be had over some sweet and cool ice cream from Zoey's Café.

Zoey's CafĂ© features all-natural ice cream at a reasonable cost for a casual outing. An 8-ounce cone will run you $2.99 and whopping 16 ounces of ice cream — plenty to feed two — costs $5.24.

Zoey's Café is located at 199 E. Main St. For information about library events, hours of operation and book reservations visit or call 774-6996.
