Beverage and Snacks Policy Changed

Beginning May 1, 2018, GPL will no longer allow beverages and snack in the library. In addition, coffee sales will also cease.


Beginning May 1, 2018, Groves Public Library will not be allowing food, or drinks inside the library. Because there is a fountain in the library foyer for water, water bottles are not allowed inside the library. Patrons may bring drinks in the library foyer. Eating outside at the picnic table is allowed as long as all food items are disposed of promptly and correctly.

Additionally, after May 1, the coffee will no longer be for sale at the library.

Library users will be given one warning that they are not to have open drink and food items in the library. If the patron or visitor still does not comply, they will be asked to leave the library.
