Free childcare at the library?
Original post made by new to Pleasanton, Country Fair, on Oct 6, 2011
Boy was I in shocked and disappointed when I arrived into the children area and the place was screaming loud with rude middle school kids and elementary school kids. they were throwing things, yelling and eating.
the group I was near were hanging in a window seating area about 15 kids and none of them even had a library book in their hands.
I was a little pleased when I saw the man reference librarian speak to them. Of course as he turned his back, they made gestures and faces at him.
Are all kids this rude to adults and to other library patrons? Is the library a free babysitting service for these soon to be juvenile delinquents?
I truly believe the library is supposed to be a place of study and not playing catch with dorito bags and such.
I am hoping parents of these kids see this and have a talk with there kids on how to respect the library, patrons of the library and Employees of the library.
