If it were up to me, food would *never *be allowed in the library. But
there are countless meetings in the evenings at which food is allowed so
the carpet is stained etc. When there are meetings at lunch, I do allow
students to eat their lunches but I ask that they clean up and empty the
trash so I don't have to smell the lingering odors for the rest of day.
Usually, this works fairly well.

I always allowed faculty to eat. They are adults and should be treated as
such. Faculty events were held on occasion in our library that included
food and that was fine. We never had problems with adults making messes.
We generally did not allow students to eat, but made exceptions for special
things from time to time.

On occasion, for instance, when they are holding a lunch meeting in the
Library. But first I lecture them on cleaning up! Water is OK.

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