Food and Drink Policy

Consumption of food and drink in the library can damage books and computers, and the refuse left behind attracts roaches, ants and other insects. We ask your assistance in helping us protect the library's resources by observing these guidelines:

  • Food/Eating is allowed only on the 1st floor of the Library.
  • No food is allowed on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors including lobby areas.
  • Please clean up after yourself. Throw away trash and food wrappers and drink containers.
  • Drinks with lids -- bottles with screw tops and any type of cup with a lid -- are allowed anywhere in the library except Louisiana and Special Collections.
  • Library patrons who do not observe these guidelines will be asked to leave the building or to go to the designated food areas- room 126 (Library Snack Lounge) and Brewed Awakening (the coffee shop in the Library's Lobby).

NO FAULT SPILL POLICY

Accidents happen. If you spill your drink, please notify the reference or the circulation desk immediately.

Spills that are cleaned up quickly are less likely to leave a stain.

LIBRARY APPROVED EVENTS

Library administration may approve special events during which exemptions to the food and drink policy may be made. Prior approval from Library administration must be sought for any exemptions to the food and drink policy.
