Quiet in the library?

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Recently I have been coming to the upper level of the library to study and nearly every time have had to move because people feel it is okay to hold an extended conversation (loud, not in whispers). Today, some students were talking outside the printing station on the upper level and their conversation echoed down through the carrels in the quiet area. Is this okay, or is there some way to emphasize the need to be quiet in the library and take conversations to the lobby or outside? Thanks very much!

Oil the chairs. People seem oblivious to the noise. (3 requests)

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)

Being Quiet

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Please keep cruising in the library at a minimum and please stop carrying on 10 min conversation w/ your friends nearby… “Psst!” I can hear your whispering and it’s ANNOYING/DISTURBING than actually talking regular volume. Go somewhere else!

Please be Quiet!

When I come to the library, it’s to get something done. If you want to have fun/eat cookies/party, etc., kindly do so elsewhere so I can read/study. Also the computer alcoves are not sound proofed- so keep it down pple!

Talking Room in the Library

Can we please have an area where talking quietly is not taboo- a more lax room for when group-study rooms are full. Thanks!

No Music in the Library!

A band in the library on Fridays is a bad idea!! I actually like to get things done on Friday afternoons. (2 people requested this)
