We allow food and reminding the students to clean up after every so often
seems to work just fine! I like offering the Library up as a safe space for
introverts to eat lunch.

Good luck!

Same as Cathy, only when my and one other advising group meets in here.

I do allow drinks in "sealed" containers.

I figure they are going to eat in here no matter what we say, so if we
outlaw it, then at least they try to hide it in their backpacks and
hopefully the crumbs will fall in there instead of on the floor.

When I got to this school it was loosely enforced and I found plates and
food everywhere. So I imagine if it were allowed it would become a dumpster
:)

Good luck!

Not at Menlo. The only exclusion to the rule is for the three advisory
groups who meet in the library once a week, and it's sold as a "special
benefit" of meeting in our space.

Dear high school librarian colleagues,

Quick question:  *do you allow students and faculty to eat lunch in
your high school library?*

Thanks,
Mary Anne
