Food and Drink: Phase B - COVID-19 Reopening

Food and Drink Policy

No Food or Drink

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 or drink 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.
  • Library patrons who do not observe these guidelines will be asked to leave the building or to go to the designated food areas- the Library's first floor and Brewed Awakening (the coffee shop in the Library's Lobby).


Accidents happen. If you spill your drink, please notify the Library Services Desk(first floor lobby) staff immediately.

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


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.
