If she could manage to keep the library a quiet place for people to read and study, now that would be deserving of a award. The computer room is frequently populated with noisy people talking to each other and on cell phones. Putting up a new sign every month does no good. You need to start removing disruptive people from the library, and keeping them out with restraining orders if necessary. The library should not be a dumping ground for parents who cannot afford a baby sitter to watch their unruly welfare meal tickets.

I agree with most of this except for the putdown of poor people and their children. A lot of people can't help being poor these days.
Lack of respect in the library is just a part of the general lack of respect for many institutions today.
Restraining orders? Let's get real. There's usually a security guard on site to preserve order. You can personally bring the problem to the proper person's attention.

Oh silly me, I should have realized that it's ok to be a noisy brat if you are poor.

The restraining order might be the best tool of all to weed out those behavior-challenged children and adults.
