Food and Drinks in the Library

food and drink allowed in the library

Enjoy a snack or a drink in the library while you're studying.  You are welcome to bring cold snacks that do not disturb other library users.  Please bring your drink into the library in a travel mug, a pop-top sports bottle or a screw-top bottle.


  • Be respectful and considerate of other library users, library staff and college property and equipment.
  • Clean up after yourself and take your containers with you when you leave.
  • Food and drinks can damage library materials and equipment and attract bugs and rodents. Report spills to the library staff so that cleaning can be arranged.
  • Paper or Styrofoam cups (including those with lids), aluminum cans, open mugs, milk cartons and hot, messy, strong-smelling or noisy foods are not allowed in the library.
  • Food and drinks are permitted everywhere in the library except the John and Molly Pollock Holocaust Collection and the Centennial College Archives.
  • Library staff will respond to complaints about inappropriate food in the library.
  • If you choose not to follow these guidelines, library staff will ask you to consume your food and drinks outside the library.
  • The library is a learning environment. Library users are expected to follow Centennial College policies and procedures, including the Centennial College Student Code of Conduct, while in the library.
