Libraries are no longer places for quiet contemplation or READING.
Instead: they are for random people with measuring tape to walk from spot to spot measuring things LOUDLY.
They are for children to run around screaming.
They are for library workers to speak at the top of their voices and drop books on the floor repeatedly.
They are for copy machines to beep continuously.
In short, if you plan on getting work done at the library, bring your iPod!
