Food and Drink | Library Policies

The Carroll University Library's Food and Drink Policy is an effort to make the Library an inviting and comfortable place for study and research, while maximizing the continued value of the Library’s collections, equipment, and furnishings. Food and drink is permitted in most areas of the Library, with a few exceptions noted below.

Users are expected to be responsible and adopt the “leave no trace” philosophy in their use of food and drink in the library by properly disposing of all trash, recycling whenever possible, removing any traces of food and drink, and cleaning all surfaces.


Food-Free and Drink-Free Areas

  • Archives and Special Collections
  • If you are disturbing others with your food and drink in the Reading Room, you will be asked to relocate to a different study area or dispose of the food and drink.
