When I was new I gave an orientation of sorts about the library and what I expect 
and with the 6-8th graders especially I emphasized the idea of consideration of 
others' needs and that consideration meant different conduct under different 
circumstances. This meant that often during book selection we don't have to be 
silent.  However some times it means we were quiet if there is another class using 
the computers for computerized testing, reading in dear/ssr type situation or even 
if there is a single student who was sent to make up a test.  
  After several years, the students know in my k-8 library we could be singing, 
playing the piano, acting etc. and we are seldom silent but we do respect the needs 
of others and therefor when called upon to do so, we are.
  I wouldn't correct the teacher, I would emphasize your expectations next 
September at an orientation if you can schedule it.  If the teachers impose other 
expectations upon their class that is their place to do so.
