I do make a point during orientation talks to let children know
something like, "I know that some librarians expect you to be silent in
the library, but this is not a silent library. You're welcome to talk
with your friends as long as you respect that some people are in here to
study or read." If anybody is disruptive, I deal with it case by case.

If I think a teacher is going to be receptive, I might tell her,
"Finding the right book is a very social process." Some get it, some
don't. But I agree, I wouldn't contradict a teacher in front of her

See you in the Library!
