Recreation in the Library

The children's section of the public library is noisy.  Aren't libraries supposed to be quiet places?

Well, the children are playing computer games.

Computer games? In the library?

I thought libraries are for reading.

I commented to a librarian and she said libraries provide recreation.

Recreation?! Like ball playing and Scrabble?

She pointed out the chess games.

I said, libraries have changed drastically since I was a kid.  Used to be, libraries were for reading books.

I don't think this is a change for the better.
