Keeping it Quiet (Hagerty Library)
I tend to use the library computers to study because, in theory, it should be quiet here. But although both the upstairs and downstairs computer areas have QUIET AREA signs posted all over, there are always people on cell phones and people talking well above a whisper. These quiet rules are never enforced and it makes studying difficult. There is a large group study area in the basement. It seems unfair that people who want a quiet area to study on a computer have to put up with this every day. Can’t someone enforce the rules?
We appreciate you expressing your concern. If you feel uncomfortable addressing the disrupters yourself, please let the Circulation Desk staff know and we will speak to them. Unfortunately, we could spend all day shushing people in the library, so we generally only enforce this when someone makes a complaint or if someone is being particularly disruptive. I would also suggest checking out a laptop and Ethernet cable and heading to the glassed-in room on the lower level- this room is always very quiet.
