Signs Spotted in Libraries

The list is labeled "Passive Aggressive Library Signs", but they seem pretty straightforward and useful to me. They clearly communicate the frustration of the sign maker, and some are downright hilarious! I would love to know the story behind the sign pictured here. Link

If you've ever worked at a library, you'll understand the need for most of these. The sense of 'I should be able to do Whatever. I. Want. whenever I want to whatever I want' entitlement is just mindboggling.
I can't tell you how much stuff we have vandalized or stolen.

(Though, I'm a bit puzzled why someone would keep *anything* potentially damaging near archival materials....)

I read the list. A lot were pretty normal signs. Mostly normal, in other words.

There were only a couple that were anything unusual.

The one about spilling the water on the archival material kinda leaves one asking "why does somebody keep a plant that lives in an open container of water above their non-waterproof work station?"
