Dear Student X,
the library is a place of silence.
A place of tranquility. So to you I ask, WHY ARE YOU DEFYING THE LIRBARY GODS ?
Perhaps the “silent zone” message isn’t being properly sent to you since it is not explicitly written out.
It is time to shut your mouth and open some pages.
That is if you even came to the library with the intention to actually open a book.
COMMON FUNCTIONS OF THE LIBRARY
1. Internet Use:
*Googling your own name is not doing research for your sociology class.
*Watching Daft Punk music videos on YouTube is not completing your cultural diversity homework.
*Reading Twitter updates has nothing to do with your media studies course.
*Using the study rooms to catch up on lost slumber is not efficient.
*Taking your “study buddy” to a study room to serve as a personal blanket is WRONG.
One they are a human being, don’t use them as a blanket and two you should be studying not giving private shows.
*The library is NOT a second cafeteria. There is a sign that says no food for a reason, and it’s not just to enforce more pointless rules on you.
3. Media Center: The place where noise is not discriminated against.
There are only a few rules to live by if you plan to enjoy the center
*Headphones are a must. I don’t want to hear to numerous voices of the talented Ms. Nikki Minaj while I’m watching a video for my psychology on schizophrenia.
*If you are planning on having a movie night (more like late afternoon) then you should rent out one of the rooms in the media center instead of having them all crowd around your computer. If there is a fire you better hope people competed in the hurdles in high school if you plan to block walk ways.
4. Reading ? :
I know that the average reading level is third grade but I rarely see students actually taking advantage of the books in the library .
Maybe if the books had more pictues, bigger fonts and everything was in color they would be more appealing.
No one wants to read and comprehend text—that’s too much more for our flat brains.
Knowing that reading is the last thing to accomplish on your list of scholarly goals makes the educational system seem flawless.
Just remember the rules for the library:
NO EARDRUM BUSTING BEATS COMING OUT OF YOU BEATS BY DRE HEADPHONES.
