About noise in the Library

  • We frequently get complaints about noise in the library.  Sometimes they relate to the coffee bar, or to staff providing service at the desks, but most often they relate to library users being noisy in the study areas.  We try to provide appropriate environments for a variety of types of learning, including dialog or group study as well as individual reading and contemplation.  We have designated the second floor of the library is a noise free zone.
