Please keep quiet in the library

How is it that a private tutor can take over areas of the library to teach one pupil, without paying for that privilege?

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.
