Food and Drink Policy
The library’s food and drink policy is intended to preserve library materials, equipment and furnishings, thereby providing a pleasant and comfortable workspace for our patrons.
- Drinks in spill-proof containers or sports bottles are allowed throughout the library—open mugs, aluminum cans, paper cups, styrofoam cups, or any container that might spill are not allowed outside the snack bar.
- Patrons are encouraged to limit food to candy, cookies, and other snacks in bags, and to confine their eating to the snack bar in order to be considerate of others. A more structured food policy is presently under consideration.
- No food deliveries of any kind are permitted.
- Occasionally, events are scheduled in the library at which refreshments are served. In these cases, eating and drinking is restricted to the event area.
Patrons who fail to comply may be asked to leave the building.
