Thank you for letting us know that some of the computer workstations and tables have been dirty. The library has an outstanding housekeeping crew, but it is challenging for them to clean the tables because there are often users sitting at them. In the future, if you notice dirty workstations or tables, please report them to the desk. Library staff will then be aware of them and can make it a priority to clean them.
For the time being, we will continue allowing food and drink in the library. The majority of our users spend a lot of time in the building and appreciate being able to eat while researching or studying. Additionally, in the six years we have been in this building, we have not had any equipment damaged by food so we feel the risk to equipment is low.
Thanks again for your comments, and for continuing to use the library!
