    Reading this now I guess what I saw someone doing on their laptop in the middle of the library at one of the kids reading tables was watching the history of steak (at the time I couldn't quite figure out why they were watching steaks being cooked and cut up, but I guess that must have been it).

    I'm sure there are some Librarians that can write a book about people watching porn in the library.

    Holy crap I was going to post this as well.

    I was at a local library, and a dude was looking at nasty porn and doing something under his coat he should not have been.

    I wonder if this is a common thing?

    Very common, seen during my college days. It was late morning which means computers were all being used with a waiting line...he had no shame at all!

    I worked in a computer lab and one old man came in and was doing it blatantly so I told the manager. The manager warned him couple of times to no avail until he finally kicked him out.

    The sad thing is when people don't even try to be sneaky about it...

    I too have seen this. In a public library. By a child no more than 10-12. At a terminal with the screen facing the checkout counter.

    The little tick didn't even bother trying to hide it...

    lol... i suppose it can come in various flavors.

    I guess if u'r sneaky about it, look one way, look the other, and hold a mag right in front of your face, that no one actually "reading" would do, unless you were hiding something, then ya,,,, perfectly "normal" /end sarcasm.
