How cool is that library! I can’t help thinking of Peldon’s lonely experience with her little boy at the Mt Gravatt library – what a diference to have groups of noisy kids in a circus environment. I know which one I’d want to be at even if the noise becomes a disturbance at times. But it puts librarians in an awkward situation, particularly when the parents are sitting close by in a coffee shop. Peck’s idea that firm rules that are enforced is really sensible and useful for hardworking librarians but also for kids who need to have boundaries so they can understand their own behaviour. I guess it’s a bit of a balancing act – balancing a fun space with a space that still a library space that others use. Doesn’t sound like a problem that’s going to go away any time soon.
