When Did the Library Rule Change?

Seriously, am I the only person who thinks being in a library means being quiet? Am I the only one left who whispers if I'm forced to talk? On Monday, I studied at Jake's campus library. This is a huge library on a huge campus. I assumed that studying there would be a good quiet place. Boy was I wrong. People answering their phones, people talking in normal voices, slamming doors, etc. I didn't go back. Today I'm in the Longmont public library. Yesterday wasn't too bad, but there is currently a mother with her two children sitting at a table reading with her children; in a normal voice. Really???? There are about 7 adults who are quietly doing their work and she comes in with her noisy, bratty boys. She's not even attempting to be quiet. I'm a heartbeat away from walking over and telling her this is a library, not a classroom. People are studying...for MEDICAL BOARDS!!!!! I could care less about hearing her child learning to read. Shut up please.


  1. I've noticed the same thing with public libraries! so annoying.

    I'm surprised about the campus library though!

  2. Library talkers are a HUGE pet peeve of mine!
