NEW policy on food in the library.
01 November 2019
This follows our pilot which ran from July through to October. Opinions were mixed, but a majority of library users were in favour of the change. Comments included:
'Great to be allowed sensible snacks as it helps my concentration!'
'Good idea. Having to leave the library to go out and eat can ruin the flow you've got going with your work. Think it's a good idea to allow food which don't disturb others.'
'Love it! Please allow it permanently. It helps so much that I don't have to leave the library just to have a snack. Really allows me to work more fluently when I can take a short break downstairs (and not have to go all the way somewhere else and back).'
Please note that the upper floors of our libraries remain food-free - lidded drinks only are permitted. There is no change to our food-free policy in Peterborough.
