Is the library kitchenette a smoke-free zone?

From the suggestion box: 

Is the kitchenette outside the Townsville library a smoke-free zone? People have been smoking cigarettes in the kitchen area and the tables near-by and I am fairly sure that is against legislation. If it is a smoke-free zone could no smoking signs please be placed in the area so people are aware of the situation. Thank you.

Library response:
 Thank you for your feedback.  You are correct that according to Qld legislation the no-smoking area at non-residential building entrances is currently 4 metres and will extend to 5 metres in September 2016.  I've raised this issue with our Estates Office who are purchasing suitable signage for this area.  We've also alerted JCU Security to this issue.
