Washtenaw Community College Richard W. Bailey Library Cracking Down on Food

No Food in the Richard W. Bailey Library at WCC

I knew something was up when I (and I think all WCC students) received an email from Victor Liu, the Dean of Learning Resources, about helping to keep food out of the Richard W. Bailey Library. (click on image below to read the email)

“We were a little lenient about allowing snacks in the library,” said Bethany Kennedy, Director of Access Services.

“But is started getting out of hand. People were ordering pizzas and getting delivery from Jimmy Johns. Students were also taking their Subway sandwiches and plates of food from the Student Center and taking them into the private study rooms.”

Kennedy noted that the custodian staff commented about having to clean up  the mess left behind.

“We have computer equipment and books, so we need to keep our facility clean so their is no damage,” said Kennedy.

Now a large sign located as you walk into the library clearly states the library’s food policy and the staff is now making the rounds to enforce it.

This means that students will have to have their pizza parties some where else.
