Q: What is the policy on eating and drinking in the Library?

A: Consumption of food and beverages is prohibited in most of the Library's public areas. However, food and beverages can be purchased and consumed in the Coffee Bar, Teo Soo Pin Library. Library staff will ask a user who does not follow these guidelines to comply and the Library staff reserves the right to require that the user to consume the food outside of the library.
