Yes, the Library has tentatively ratified the 21st amendment - in other words, you may now bring your coffee, your soda, and all other manner of beverages into the Library. To ensure that this new policy is ratified permanently (and to keep our new carpet in good condition), please make sure to IMMEDIATELY report any spill to the Library staff.
Also, since I adamantly REFUSE to hunt creepy crawly creatures, do not succumb to the temptation to bring in food. The creepy-crawlies are especially fond of chips, candy, and other snacks and like to hang out in the Study Rooms, so please take a study break outside of the Library when you are hungry.
Now, time for my morning coffee. Purrrrrrrr.
