    OOOOO...this is a GOOD one - SIGNED by the director.

    Will blog and add to "hyperlinked Library" talk with full cite for YOU, sir. :-)

    Thanks for the sharp eye.

    Also, interesting use of the RED for the word "off"
  • Alan Gray 8y

    Would we agree that any library that takes that stance, in that tone, is a disgrace to the library community? Why continue to beat around the bush?

    The sign creates such a warm, inviting atmosphere! Yuck! I love, "library director."
  • Michael Casey 8y

    Any library may have areas they need to be quiet zones but this type of signage is simply awful. Yes, Alan, I would agree that the tone of this sign is a disgrace.

    OFF > app. 72pt font size
    Thank you > app. 20pt font size

    I don't know for sure whether to LOL or to cry...

    I have since talked to the director of the library involved and he has informed me that the library is active in discussions regarding changing the policy to something less restrictive.
  • Michael Stephens 8y

    Michael - was he aware of this picture, the conversation, etc?
  • Michael Sauers 8y

    Yes. In fact he said he tried to post a comment to your blog but had some trouble doing so. E-mail me directly if you'd like his e-mail address.
  • Michael Stephens 7y

    Michael - has the policy changed? We had a long discussion about this in class.
  • ReverseCellPhones 6y

    I wasn't going to obey until I say the Library Director at the bottom.

    Sadly, in Libraryland, patrons need things spelled out to them. Saying it nicely doesn't cut it.
