The Library Cafe has bad sound proofing that everyone can hear every sound in the bathroom and students go a distance to use another one. There are many arguments in the computer area over the noise of others. Even the study room can hear the noise outside it. The solution is sound proofing but it looks like the college will not do that. They may not want to lose the postcard look so a solution is a glass wall between aisles. Students have said they are writing the chancellor about it. All events are in Bklyn unless noted and most free.
