Have libraries always been noisy?


I live in a small town, and I occasionally go to library to write. Every time I go, librarians are laughing and talking at the top of their lungs, people are on cell phones, conversations are in process in every corner of the library. Am I wrong, or didn't the library used to be a quiet place where you go told to be quiet if you were being too loud? Am I the only one who believes that libraries are for studying and reading, not socializing?

    Excellent answer! I absolutely notice that consideration has gone out the window. Everyone seems stuck in their own bubbles - not aware of anyone else.
