Love the new Rules at the Library!!! We can EAT!!! For over a hundred years the rules were NO Eating, Drinking, or Talking!!! Remember that as a kid??!! Now We can bring in a burger and fries so long as it's at the Bar!!! Wouldn't it be grand if they put in a Starbucks!!!

@amadeo I confess that I would not like hearing people munching while I am reading something. If they stay at the bar is fine, but not while they read or touch the books.

That is a nice thing to do in a library-eat! We do not have a place set aside in our library where people can eat.

@db20747 I am jealous. Honestly, it has been a long time that I didn't go to the city's library. It is so boring to stay there.

@db20747 So true. Honestly, if people around didn't say a thing to me, why had it had to be a mean female librarian. If she was hungry, I could had given a bite to her

The big library on my island recently moved into a new building. Now there is a cafe where we can buy food and drinks. That is also a new thing here, but I like it.

@db20747 Yes, I think it is a great idea. In the past there was a vending machine where we could buy candy, but other kinds of food weren't allowed and we were not allowed drink coffee either.

What a surprise! Perhaps today there are less people visit the library and therefore they need to think out more ways to attract readers?

I like when there's no talking.People are too self-absorbed, and think their noise doesn't bother anyone else.

I don't know about that. Having food in a library adds to mess, noise and smell.
