For the comfort of our patrons, the Cary Library allows snack/individual portions of food in designated areas of the library. These spaces are the main level Commons Area, the Teen Room, and the lower level corridor outside of the Children’s Room.
Examples of appropriate foods include small bags of pretzels, granola bars, string cheese, apples, or small containers of yogurt. We ask that you not consume hot, aromatic, or potentially messy items (pizza, burgers, and salads) in the library.
Covered beverages are allowed in all areas except for the local history rooms on the main floor.
We ask our patrons to clean up after themselves, and to notify staff if there is a spill that needs attention.
Library staff do not oversee food for potential allergens, such as nuts or dairy. Those with severe allergies should be aware that allergens may be present in the library.
