Update to ‘New Library Food and Drink Regulations’

We have updated our food and drink regulations. The regulations remain essentially unchanged, but a clear explanation of what is meant by ‘snacks’ has been added. Our library notices will be altered to reflect this.
This clarification was thought necessary because some of our readers were misinterpreting the word ‘snack’ and were eating what can more accurately be described as meals in the library.
According to our updated policy: ‘Snacks are taken to be a small amount of food consumed between meals. Library staff reserve the right to interpret this rule and have the final say on whether food is a meal or snack. As a general guide, however: if eating it requires a fork, spoon or chopsticks, the item being consumed is not a snack’.
Readers are also reminded that no food or drink, apart from water, is allowed in the quiet reading room.
