While I understand the need to keep library use productive, I take a more relaxed 
stance when it comes to lunchtime use. Each year I get more kids coming in to the 
library at lunch to hang out, visit with me or each other, use computers, eat lunch 
(our commons area is very small), read, check out books, etc. It doesn't matter to 
me if they spend this time only doing school work as lunch is their only break 
during the day. I do not, however, allow cell phone, MP3 or handheld game use as 
they are banned schoolwide over the entire course of the day.
I want my kids to feel that the library can be highly educational/informative, yet 
relaxing and fun at the same time. My kids understand the guidelines I have for 
lunch and so far I haven't had any problems. I think they feel it is a safe, 
welcoming place for them to be.
