Please – Disable speakers on library laptops.
I’m sorry you’ve found library laptop speakers to be bothersome. According to library rules, electronic devices in the library are not allowed to be audible to others, so earphones are offered for sale at public service desks. The speakers haven’t been disabled for a couple of reasons.
1.) If the speakers are inactive, so is the jack that provides sound via earphones.
2.) Sometimes there are valid reasons why the speakers need to be functional, such as for computer classes happening in a conference room or staff applications beyond public areas.
If you notice an electronic device being used audibly in the library, please alert a staff member while it is occurring so that it can be addressed directly.
Assistant Library Director
