Library Loudmouth: What are the rules of etiquette specific to the library?

Q: Is there etiquette specific to a library?

 

 

A: Since a library is considered a “quiet” place, people should talk softly and only when necessary and cell phones should be turned off or set to vibrate.  If it is necessary to take a call or make one, a person should do so in a secluded area away from other patrons.  The essential etiquette is to be mindful of the other people who rightfully expect a quiet place to read or study.
