No cell zone
Please make the entire library cell free. There is no reason patrons cannot take their calls outside. One third of the patrons come to the library to talk on their cell phones. Thank you.
Thanks for the good idea. The noise level at the library is a constant issue. We want people to be quiet so everyone can work, but we also want people to be able to do group work. Also, we don’t have the resources to constantly police the noise level. Clearly, cell phone use is a noise issue, and when we see people loudly talking on their cell phones, we do try to control it. However, it’s difficult for us to make rules we can’t enforce. If someone is disturbing you with a phone conversation, and if you’ve asked them to stop and they won’t, please ask a library staff member to help you. We will do our best to help.
