Each teacher has a different teaching style.  When a teacher comes to
our library they bring their style with them, and we respect that.  When
a class is in the library, it is the teacher's rules that they follow.
Some of our teachers want total silence - that is fine.  Other teachers
allow talking.  I prefer to allow the teachers to set their rules for
the library.  Students know that they can talk when they come to the
library on a pass, without a teacher.  I think you should respect the
teacher's style.  Silence is sometimes appropriate in the library - and
sometimes talking is appropriate.  Teaching students to recognize what
is appropriate, and adapting to that, is what is more important.
