Drinking from covered containers is permitted in the Kellogg Library. Users with drinks in covered containers are asked to keep these items covered and away from equipment.

No food is permitted.

Eating and drinking contribute to the deterioration of library collections in several ways.

  • Food and drink spilled directly on library materials, including computer equipment, and traces of food or drink transferred from hands to these resources compromise their integrity and shorten their usefulness.
  • Spills, crumbs and garbage attract rodents and insects that are harmful to library materials.
