Why is it that a person can no longer sit in the Lincoln City Library and read a newspaper or magazine without having to listen to screaming kids? I was disturbed about this a while back and wrote the City Manager. He forwarded my email to the Librarian who answered back that “she was trying to make the library more welcoming.”
Welcoming to who? More screaming brats? I went in there today and had to plug my ears as about 15 screaming brats came out the door. I was thinking perhaps it would be quiet in there with all those out the door. Wrong. There were still two more inside screaming their darling little heads off. Their mother finally dragged them out the door – bodily.
Why is it too much today to teach children to respect others? I have been in the Newport Library and have not ever heard a screamer in there. I went to the children’s area and heard children talking, but never screaming. Why is our library full of screamers?
Could the City maybe build a sound-proof room (with an outside door) so that all the screaming brats and their mothers can put up with each other, without other people having to tolerate the excessive decibels? I am sure some of the noise exceeds 85 decibels and is therefore damaging to the eardrums.
