      This is just a fash thread that will derail into talking about homeless minorities as if they are feral animals. Anons will talk of when they 'used to be good' during the 'before times' as if it wasn't just their middle or high school library. Ancaps will come in and discuss how superior private libraries are because sunk cost sucking bezo's dick. No one will discuss the downfall of public libraries due to the systematic destruction of public spaces. Poor anons will come in thinking they are superior to the homeless and talk of how they 'have it all on an e-reader for free'.

      We have had this thread a million times and we will have become very good at it.

      Really? I don't think I've seen any um, less than reputable, individuals at my local library before. But then I don't live in a city so maybe it's because it's not too popular a spot.

    not really. though one thing i will say is that I like to keep the library sacred. if i find myself goofing off on my phone I leave. Doing this makes me a lot more productive when I'm there.

        The 1950s were good because America was riding the very peak of the tidal wave of globalist economic and cultural influence that comes from going through the largest war in history selling guns to all comers and suffering no homefront damage whatsoever. The very political and economic forces that have created the modern zero-sum global economy also created the fever dream post-war economy. Neither of these are natural or virtuous states for people to live in.

        If you talk to older people who actually lived through the era, they all say the same thing: society peaked in the early to mid 60's, then it has been all downhill from there.

      I don't know what a private library is (but I'm sure Andrew Carnegie would have puke), or what most of your buzzwords mean, but hobos didn't used to be in libraries.
      POOR PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK are who used to line up before the library opened, so they could read the Help Wanted ads in the newspaper.

      That is very different than down-and-out drug addicts and weirdos monopolizing the computers so they can gamble their welfare money.

      I am superior to a homeless degenerate and I read everything on a tablet for free. If you see yourself on the level of the homeless, you are delusional, guilty, and deserve to join them in their shelters. Further, if you support sucking publisher and corporate penis, by all mean, return your infinitely replicable PDFs after 3 weeks.

      Also, Public spaces were never good, and were always filled with shitty handmedowns to the lowest and most impoverished citizens. The only times a public space is good is when the lowly slaves of society are barred from it (a contradiction to the notion of public)

        Bums are basically why the "tragedy of the commons" problem exist. Start upholding rules, basic personal hygiene, and common courtesy; most of the problems of public libraries will evaporate.

      Imagine instead of giant jagged glass penises attached to depressing concrete boxes, beautiful classical or gothic architecture. Imagine instead of troony storytime hour and Harry Potter condom kiosks for kids, the library being a place for local scholars, antiquarians, monks, and cultural enthusiasts to promote learning and wisdom. Imagine instead of hobos pissing their pants while looking at scat porn and Chinese people eating carrots with their mouths open loud enough to rattle the cheap windowpanes, polite and well-dressed citizens.

      Imagine the world we almost had and could have again.

    Libraries are a social spot where it's cool to meet intellectual people! If you see a friendly looking person at a library, go ahead and just talk to them. There's no need to be "quiet" like in the good old days.

    If a person bothers to get dressed, get in their car, drive allllll the way to the library, and do more than just get a book and leave, then they're there to socialize!

    The type of socializing is not dating. It's intellectual debate and becoming actual friends. There's no need to live a post-covid life without friends. This is how you meet new ones. People who deny this concept are heretics of peace and love.

      This but unironically in non-quiet sections of the library, turn them into symposiums to keep them relevant in the age of libgen and sci-hub.

      There's a survivor's bias as they have no way of comparing it to something like the Belle Époque, there's a reason that post-war prosperity ended as soon as Germany and Japan rebuilt and the middle east consolidated power.

    listen
    there exists no proof that above statement is true
    your average 4/10 gets 10 'open bob' or 'hi qtie' messages a day on her clickview thing
    average moron is a non virgin, has a girlfriend, kids, etc

    you people are very specifically and deeply fricked in the head, and assuming a random stranger next to you is like you is statistically wrong, and doesnt want to socialize with you, especially since none of you even read any books judging by the state of this board where 0.02% of the threads are about a specific piece of literature instead of thinly veiled offtopic 80 iq gossip thread

    Public libraries are pretty useful as a study space, I go pretty often so that I can clear my head and work in a more open space. There's definitely going to be homeless people hanging out there, but most (I say most because it's always a possibiliy, I've never experienced this myself and I live in a city with a lot of homeless) won't bother you.

    If you ever want to get a wife and have a family you will need to find a way to make money. However if you are fine being alone for the rest of your life and you are able to make enough to provide for yourself while reading all day, then go ahead.

    Not really, I do this all the time. Just sit in the "quiet room" by myself for 5 or 6 hours reading. The only annoyance is when old people also walk in and proceed to make noise because they're inconsiderate c**ts.

    You don’t need to be surrounded by books to read one…reading (for an extended time) at a library feels as silly to me as sitting down and having a meal in a grocery store.

    Read at home, in a park, at a cafe, on the bus…but it sounds like you like the concept of camping in a library more than the (more modest) reality of sitting to read a single book at a time.

    Do you want to sit in a library all day, or do you want to be seen as the sort of person who would sit at a library all day?

    Both are fine, you do you. But it’s worth investigating which of these is motivating you (and why you feel like posting about it here).

    Are you going to do some really in-depth syntopical reading, maybe with some reference books you can't check out? Otherwise, why not go home and read in your personal library? It must be less distracting and probably more comfortable.

    Hot take, libraries have failed as public institutions and the masses cannot be coerced into literacy and education against their will without disastrous amounts of social engineering (if even then).
    Shut down the libraries and give their contents over to the literati to maintain and curate.
