Food and Drink Guidelines

You are welcome to bring food and non-alcoholic drinks into the libraries. When you do so, please be responsible and considerate of others:

  • Use sturdy, spill-proof containers
  • Keep food and drink away from computers
  • Clean up any spills or crumbs and throw your trash away
  • If you see a mess in the library, please report it to a library employee right away
  • Recycle reusable materials if possible
  • Avoid consuming messy or strong-smelling foods in the library that may disturb other library users

Please feel free to notify a library employee if your study is being disrupted by someone else in the library. See our Standards of Behavior Policy for more details.

To report a disturbance, please inform any library employee in person, text “Help Anywhere” at 510-880-1917, or call 510-885-3612.
