Southwest Harbor Public Library

    This room was about twenty feet from the "no laptops" room. Of course, this room was crowded as EVERYONE had a laptop. The other room was empty. No one using it.

      I was JUST there, and saw the exact same thing! I was irritated as a potential patron... I'm always looking for a place with internet. Some of my family members who had a deadline to meet ended up going to the coffee shop/cafe instead of the library... it was much more inviting for laptop users.

      I lost this argument on PUBLIB. Someone bragged they were building a "quiet" room that wouldn't allow laptops. The confusion there is too deep to even plumb.

      This is so obviously a case of users voting with their feet (or keyboards) in this case.

      Since when are laptops all that loud?
