Hi Kirsten,
My library hasn't used this product, but homasote is a sound reducer that can be installed as a free standing divider or used as a bulletin board on a wall. It can be painted as well. I have made "T" shaped free standing walls with each wall about 4' x 8' for displaying artwork or notices. You can learn more about the product here: http://www.homasote.com/

Good Luck,

Subject: [Libs-Or] Acoustic treatments?

I'm curious if any of you have had success with incorporating acoustic treatments after the fact into your libraries? My library is frequently named the Loudest Library on the Coast by patrons, and it's not ALL because I have super loud staff members -- the architecture around our front desk tends to amplify noise rather badly. I am looking into whether there is a way we could add acoustic panels or something to deaden some of the echoes and address some of the noise issues.
