Bean Bag Chairs and Civility

People sleeping on bean bag chairs in the book stacks has become a problem. See my response to a student's suggestion at the McIntyre Library Suggestion Box Blog.

Sleeping in the stacks keeps other students from getting to the books they need and keeps our student workers from doing their jobs.

Be considerate, think of others not just yourself and find somewhere else to take a nap on a bean bag. There are plenty of other cozy places in the library to take a bean bag chair. If this continues to be a problem next year we will have to reevaluate having bean bag chairs. They seem very popular but they cannot be used in a way the keeps other students from getting the books they need.
