Has the Killam Library become a part-time nursery?

The noise levels during the past week would seem to indicate that.

High school students from over Halifax have been using the Killam Library to study for their exams.  Instead of quietly studying, many of the high school students have been loud and distracting, causing complaints from Dalhousie students.

During this week, the Twitter page for Dalhousie security has been active with tweets about the noise levels at the Killam.

But high school students are not being disruptive while studying at other university libraries.

Ron Houlihan, Saint Mary’s promotional services librarian, says they have received no complaints about high school students being loud.

The Killam Library seems to be the main location for these disturbances.

Here are some student reactions to the disruptions:
