Want Quiet Now!
I’ve listened to the library management do nothing but MAKE EXCUSES for the past 3 years about why they can’t do anything FIRM about creating and maintaining a quite place to study! Where did the library go?! Where is the study environment I’m paying for?! The administration needs to implement a cultural shift beginning with the incoming freshmen and tell them “NO, it’s not ok to talk in the quite areas, talk on your phone. No, library staff shouldn’t be talking on their phones or talking to friends in quite areas while they put away books“. Put up signs in the stairwell of the 3rd floor declaring “talking is no longer permitted on the 3rd floor” and redirect people to the 1st and second floors”. Give us students a chance to successfully study. Less excuses, less complacency, and MORE ACTION PLEASE !!!! Most people aren’t capable of making the right decisions. I just asked 2 individuals at the round table as their eating food and talking aloud in a distracting manner, why must they sit in the quite section? Their first reply was that they liked the scenery. Then they said they didn’t know they couldn’t sit there and talk, that their was any indication to the contrary. HELLO? LIBRARY MANAGEMENT? PEOPLE NEED NEW SIGNS TO GET THEIR ATTENTION PLEASE! (reading other comments from students, looks like its time to do more than “acknowledge a problem exists”!) Indeed, Ignorance is bliss at Humboldt State Library. Signed, ~ Still waiting for action 3 YEARS LATER
