To the Editor,
There seems to be no control in the libraries as to what activities go on.
How is it that a private tutor can take over areas of the library to teach one pupil, without paying for that privilege? The noise can be heard a good 30 feet away, as it seems these people feel their voices are loved by all those around them. By their well-heard conversations there is no doubt that these are paid sessions, and we assume that it is being given by teachers who are used to raising their voices so that a large class can hear them. It is totally unpleasant for the rest of the taxpayers, most of whom go to the library to have a restful read or to contemplate a selection of books.
