Mobile Phones

From the Suggestion Box:

Cairns - Could a sign please be put in the stairwell on the top floor of library banning use of mobile phones in there as the talking noise is greatly increased. (Students just need to walk OUT of the stairwell onto the 1st or ground floor before they converse - not hard to do.) Thank you.

Library Response:

Thank you for the suggestion. It is a good idea. We are aware that any conversations in the stairwell near Level 2 of the Cairns Library Building are amplified for all to hear. I will ensure we put some signage in the stairwell to alert students to the sound generated in that space. In the past we had signs became a little old and tired, and were subsequently removed. It is time for some fresh signs.
