A new post on the NY Times City Room blog complains about how libraries are becoming ever-noisier.
It is true that something like our library's "talking areas"--rooms where low talking about schoolwork is permissible--would have been unthinkable in a law library 20 or 30 years ago, and some of our library's patrons think that making phone calls where no one can see them also means that no one can hear their conversations (cell phone calls are not permitted inside the library). But, from some of the descriptions in this City Room post, our library is still much, much quieter than many public libraries have become.
With these thoughts in mind, please remember to be respectful to other library users during this finals season.
