Beaver Library ... a mad house

Whatever happened to the library we all knew, where
the slightest noise was greeted with a shhhhhh?
I'm sitting here in Beaver Library and I can't tell
if it's a library or a child care center.
The din of noise is unbelievable.
The small children have made this library a mad house.
What has happened to parents that they can't control
their kids?
It's supposed to be very quiet, so patrons can relax
and read or look for something to check out.
The librarian aides seem helpless to do anything.
Our society is going to hell in a hand basket.
There's no such thing as respect anymore.
This younger generation doesn't know from Shinola.

Make a complaint to the county commisioners about it. The librarians have an overhead intercom system that could be utlized without direct confrontation with any one specific individual.

"This is the supervising librarian of Beaver Library. As supervisor, I ask you to respect your neighbor beside you and lower your voice. We promote a quiet environment for study and learning. Please honor our request, or you will be asked to leave."

That's what I would expect to hear at a library with a building full of noise makers.
