Noise

Overview

  • A reasonable amount of noise is to be expected in the library.
  • The library cannot guarantee quiet -- particularly during our busiest times (generally 12-3pm, daily) -- but will work with users needing quiet to the best of our ability to make alternative arrangements.

  • Please note: the library is at its busiest and loudest during lunch hours (noon-3pm), daily, so users seeking quiet should plan accordingly.

Users seeking socialization

  • Users seeking socialization should avoid settling in our quiet area and, rather, consider using public areas, like the cafeteria and Dolphin Cove.
  • Users making an unreasonable amount of noise will be asked to be quieter and/or to leave the library entirely; please comply with all library staff instructions regarding noise level cheerfully and respectfully.
