Food and Beverage Policy

Enjoy Snacks, But Leave no Trace.

Library users in Hatch, H-L and the Art and Music libraries are welcome to enjoy a drink and snack anywhere in the buildings, as well as in the lobby of the Language Media Center. Food and drinks are not allowed in Special Collections & Archives in H-L, or the viewing area of the Language Media Center. We need your help to ensure that our libraries stay clean and inviting. Here's how you can help:

  • Be considerate of other library users and Bowdoin housekeepers.
  • Clean up after yourself.
  • Please use covered mugs and cups.
  • Empty liquids into bathroom sinks before disposing of cups.
  • Report spills immediately at the Circulation Desk.
  • Avoid messy foods that may damage library materials and facilities.
  • Dispose of trash properly. Recycle when you can and place non-recyclable garbage in trash cans.
