New Food & Drink policy in the Library

(8 October 2018)

Cold food can be consumed on Level 1, 2 and 3. Level 4 remains a no-food zone. Lidded drinks are allowed throughout the Library.

Until refurbishment of the Library café is completed in Epiphany 2019, alternative catering facilities are provided in the Lower Mountjoy area: a coffee cart has been located outside the Library and a selection of vendors will be present on weekdays. Please consider that hot food is not allowed anywhere in the Library and has to be consumed in the marquee installed in the library square. The Calman Café will operate extended opening hours. Please see here for updates and further details.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
