"No loitering" sign in front of Spring Garden Road Library. 

"No loitering" sign in front of Spring Garden Road Library.

Remarks: "Why do they put those tempting benches there and keep the grass so nice and soft and have shady trees and a french-fry truck if we are not allowed to stop and enjoy them?" asks Gail via Beck says the signs were put up several years ago to prevent "people from camping out" but that it's cool to hang out on the benches and such. Yes, that means what you think it means: subjective interpretation of "loitering." See Wark, Bruce, page 3.

Who's Responsible?: Darlene Beck, branch manager, 490-5804.

Status: December 2008: Unresolved No one seems to pay any attention to those signs. The grounds around the public library continue to function as they ought to- as a public space for people to relax and interact. Updated by Lizzy Hill
