Cell phone Room

We need a cell phone room for people to talk in. I never study here anymore b/c people always talk on their cell phones. (8 requests)

    We understand the need for a soundproof and private space for short, impromptu cell phone conversations. We’ll see what we can do to provide it! In addition, we encourage people to take their conversations outdoors so that others can study. Until the weather gets warmer, that might mean fewer phone calls and more productivity–not a bad outcome!

    We had some hopes for buying a nice red, retro, private phone booth for the library, but the current budget climate unfortunately doesn’t allow us to pursue this 🙁

    In the mean time, we encourage everyone to remember that the library is a public space. If you can take it to the lobby, cafe, or an open room, great; if not, please be considerate of others when you need to use your cell phone in the library.

    Of course, the flip side of this is that we also need to exhibit a bit of patience and understanding towards those engaging in brief, quiet cell phone conversations!

    Everyone join hands and sing Kumbaya!

    There are now two cell phone booths at the Davis Library. One is in place on the Upper level to the north of the restrooms. The second booth will be located on the Lower level, the exact spot to be determined. Reach out and call someone!

    Would it be possible to do some art on these new cellphone booths?

    Hi Carllee
    Great idea, and we’d love to see some proposals! If you (or anyone else) have something specific in mind, please contact me (Terry Simpkins).
