Library etiquette…? Yes, I’m in the Hamptons…yes, it is fun. Yes, it is beautiful. Yes, I can walk on the beach everyday. Yes, I’m blessed with an amazing library — videos, computers, books, books, books and endless programs!
From one techie to another …it is hard for me to leave my cell phone off anywhere, however, I cherish the silent walls of the library?! Well, they are suppose to be silent. As I’ve mentioned before…my library is like going to Starbuck’s. I’d go to Starbuck’s if there was one near me.
Babies are crying, cell phones are ringing, people are texting, people are asking other people to turn off their phones…. people are mad when they are asked to turn off their phones…IPads are ringing….baby boomers are asking for help in learning how to use the computers…the reference managers are on the phone pretending to be busy so they don’t have to deal with the summer influx of city people. We should have our own reality show…”The Real Librarians of the Hampton’s”….
