Despite putting up signs near the fireplace, folks do talk on the mobile phone as well as talk loudly. Could you please enforce silence in these zones?
Thanks for your attention.
Thank you for your message. You are correct that the fireplace area is a Quiet Zone, where no cell phones are allowed. Please let our staff know when this occurs, and we will address it with the person using their cell phone. The same is true for loud talkers in the fireplace area.
Because of the skylight that encompasses both the reference desk area and the fireplace area, pretty much any sounds or conversations at the reference desk are amplified even more--we do our best, but sometimes even we forget ourselves, so please do let us know if our interactions at the reference desk are too loud for you in the fireplace area and we will do our best to modulate our voices.
Thank you for taking the time to contact us.
