Can I eat and drink in the library?


There's no hot food allowed within any of our libraries. Cold food can be eaten in designated areas.  Please be aware of your neighbour with regard to smelly and noisy foods.

Drinks are allowed in lidded containers anywhere in our libraries.

Food and drink are not permitted in The John Rylands Library and the Archive & Record Centre in the Main Library.

There are plenty of places to eat and drink your own food around the campus, including the cafe in the AGLC entrance.

Help us keep your Library clean and recycle what you can.

This is your Library, your space, your community. Look after it and each other – If you need help just speak to us #UoMLibraryNeighbours.

You can get in touch with any member of staff, just look for the purple people! If you would prefer not to speak face-to-face, you can contact us via any of our social media channels, our Library Help service and the Library Chat tab on all webpages. Further contact details can be found on our Contact details page and our locations and opening hours pages.
