Loose the dated, silent Library and make it welcoming

Hack the Library
How we can use our library to make Worthing an even better place to live?

It would be great to see Worthing library as a destination, somewhere people plan on meeting friends and could spend some time. I don't understand the need for a silent library, how great would it be if it could have the buzz and feel of a really nice bookshop. Where you are allowed to talk and even laugh. Having been asked to stop laughing at Worthing Library when checking out books, I have since kept my visits short. A café or coffee shop could really help attract people in and sitting among the books would be great .

why not create quiet space /room for those who need to read / study.

The staff could then talk and welcome visitors in
