Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was born on May 22, 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland.  As a school boy, he told stories to entertain his fellow students.  He later attended the University of Edinburgh with future authors James Barrie and Robert Louis Stevenson.  During medical school, he wrote his first short story called The Mystery of Sasassa Valley.  Doyle then became a foreign correspondent in Egypt and a doctor in Africa.  He settled in England, eventually giving up his medical career to write full time.  In 1887, Sherlock Holmes first appeared in the book A Study in Scarlet.  Doyle ultimately wrote sixty stories about Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Watson.

Need for quiet

There needs to be a chat room for people who congregate and talk non-stop in groups.  This way they don't disturb people trying to read.  This is a very noisy library.  At Nyack Library you can hear a pin drop.

Today's public library is a center of the community, a place where neighbors, friends, and students meet whether by chance or appointment. The staff will enforce the patron code of conduct policy if conversation reaches a volume or duration that proves disruptive to fellow patrons, but we will not shush. 

We are one of the more busy libraries in the county.  Our patrons and staff are engaged, educated, and vibrant people who thrive on social interaction.  We'd hate to squash that.
