Shhh! This is a library, right?

This topic came up last week, and we didn't realize how controversial it is.  Someone was complaining that our local library is too loud.  We aren't talking about a study library here.  Just a regular library where people go to check out books and movies.  We understand that some people may need to use the library to get away, and there are study rooms and quiet corners if needed, but should people be shushed in libraries?

To us it seems friendlier when people are meeting, laughing, and talking in the library.  Others see the library as a refuge and want a peaceful quiet environment.

Since this started we have been surprised by the variety of opinions. Sounds like we need a poll!  Please answer the poll on the right sidebar.  It will close the first day of July and we'll publish the results.

If clicking a button just isn't enough to get your thoughts off your chest in regards to this controversial topic then feel free to leave a comment defending your opinion.
