Asian Library New Food & Drink Policy


Effective immediately, no food is being consumed in any public area in the Asian Library.

To ensure the protection and preservation of library collections, and to provide a comfortable and clean environment for studying, Asian Library enforces a new and strict food and drink policy starting from September 18, 2015. Under the new policy, library users may not eat in any public space inside the library. They may drink from closed, spill-proof containers.

Library staff or workers will request those who do not respect this policy to dispose of food and beverages (in unapproved containers). Please store, out of sight, any food and drinks intended for later consumption elsewhere.

Recycling, green and garbage bins can be found in the Asian Centre foyer. Please sort out and deposit your recyclable beverage containers and food scrap into the appropriate bin.


Not Acceptable
Drinks that are in spill-proof containers Food, including candy and snacks
Open drink containers, including pop cans, juice boxes, and milk cartons

Thank you for the cooperation.
