After reporting teens going back and forth from computer to computer and making noise two times, a middle aged man was threatened by one of the teens saying "Come on lets go outside"
A teen threatening another patron is considered assault. So now the man has to be afraid to go outside because the teen and his friends might be wating for him to come out of the library. These punks hang around outside of the library on a regular basis. Eventually the three teens were asked to leave. Another patron witnessed the event and said the kids were making too much noise as well. So now patrons are afraid of reporting punks making noise and loitering in the computer room because they might be physically attacked. This library mantians its policy of kids and teens hanging out in the computer room after police have already been called at least on one prior incident.

Pros: security guard tried

Cons: Assault is not acceptable at CPL

I've had some pretty bad experiences at Mayfair Library.
I lost my sweater and the clerk laughed about it and acted like it was no big deal and that someone probably stold it. Later I saw the clerk going through the lost and found box as if the contents of the box were things to be taken by staff. I wanted to use a computer in adult computer section and there was so much noise from kids playing video games that I was unable to apply for a job using the web. I told the librarian that I wanted quiet and he told me that I should get used to the kids making a lot of noise on the adult computers. I wanted to park several times by the library but I noticed the library staff parks right by the library building so I had to park a few blocks away. A real reluctance of staff to help you. It is almost as though staff is looking for reasons not to help you. A girl was doused by water as a ceiling tile caved in by the computer she was using. It would be nice to see the librarian get to work on time so that at least one man would be in the library instead of two female clerks (pages) and then creepy semi-homeless (men) people in the library wih no secutiry guard. Librarian comes in 5, 10, 15+ minutes late. Library staff also merge breaks so that they end up leaving one hour early and then they really end up taking breaks anyway. Can you beleive the people of the city of Chicago are actually paying for this lack of service?
