Containers that are not considered acceptable include:
Open cups or mugs
No food is allowed in the reading rooms.
Readers not complying with these policies will be asked to take the food or drink to the Marble Room on the first floor.
Unattended food in library spaces will be discarded as well as unattended drinks in unapproved containers.
