Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Researchers?

The Library of Congress ostensibly received word on Friday, April 4th, about a protest in the European Reading Room. Perhaps this was the first time that so many quiet, respectable readers faced patrols in the middle of the day. The pictures below are definitely worth a thousand words. Considering that the former was taken at 4 p.m. on a Friday, one might surmise that the ERR has a pretty high degree of readership. In the meantime, Demolition Day is less than 2 weeks away. Any word yet about where we are going to put all those books?

It is rather appalling that the LC police wandered through the room so many times to "intimidate" the users. Once was sufficient to ensure that nothing was getting out of hand.
