The Hyde Institute Library in Barnet Vale, Hertfordshire, England had some strict rules for its patrons.

Citation for the original is uncertain. According to the Bodleian Library, the source may be a 1930 issue of the Nottingham PostA slightly different version of these rules may have appeared in the May 2, 1930 issue of the Western Gazette. Yet another version appeared on page 11 of the May 29, 1930 issue of the Singapore Free Press and Mercantile Advertiser.

Thanks, Woody Guth3!
