What happened to "Quiet" at the Library

All of the comments some months ago about our very noisy Pleasanton Library brought some temporary results, but the noise is back. The voices are at too high a level for a library. Doesn't the Library have any staff that can occasionally walk around and tell people that don't seem to know, that a library should be relatively quiet, and loud voices/conversation are inappropriate. I can understand whispered conversations, but it is very loud conversations, in all of the adult sections, and no Library staff seem to be able to ask people to keep their voices low because it is a library. I have been in other local libraries and I don't see that kind of behavior tolerated as the Pleasanton Library tolerates it. What message are we giving people who disrespect others with their loud voices/conversation at a Library???? If library staff is not willing to tell people about "quiet please" maybe many, many, many, signs on all the tables and all the computer stations and anywhere you can find a spot to place a sign in all the adult sections might help.
