Located on the ground floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, Mark's Café is a very popular location for library users. It is named for Mark Goldstein (C'83), Penn alumnus and son of Libraries Overseer Bernard Goldstein (W'53).
The Goldsteins have been instrumental in the transformation of the ground floor and much of the first floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center. By taking the lead in the Café project, the Undergraduate Study Center, the Information Processing Center, and the Electronic Classroom, they have left an indelible imprint on the academic experience of students and faculty and on the work lives of Libraries staff. The Goldsteins have contributed more than $2 million dollars to the rehabilitation of Penn's Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center.
The menu at Mark's Café include coffee drinks, snacks, and light fare. Café environs, where visitors can eat, drink, chat and think, include indoor and outdoor seating and wireless and wired Internet connections.
