The Library as a Quiet Space

Posted by Library Blog on 11/22/2016 at 01:55 PM

Laura Miller, a journalist, once wrote, “one of the most precious resources libraries offer their patrons is simple quiet.” She also wrote “librarians are highly skilled, well-educated and socially aware” so here at the Legal Beagle we are inclined to believe her!

As we delve deeper into the semester, through the reading period and into exams, this is just a reminder to be aware of the noise level in the library. While some students prefer to work in small groups in study rooms and appreciate the chatter of other students, some students prefer to study in silence. The library hopes to provide an atmosphere which can accommodate the learning and studying preferences of all of our patrons. Please be respectful to all law students by being mindful of your noise level in the library.
