Encouraging Good Behaviours

Boing Boing recently showed this picture as an indication of easy ways to encourage the social behaviours
and etiquettes that we might want to see (or have rules about).
Place an olive pit in the discard dish before the guests arrive.
Check out your library rules and signs. Could you do something as simple as
this or this to cleverly drive compliance? In any case I hope it doesn’t look like this.
When my wife worked in retail one of the buyers would always come through the shirt department and mess up the sale table by opening a package or two and mussing it up. We learned a lot from his insight that sales doubled off the messy table since it attracted attention to the sale price better than the actual sign (sometimes there wasn’t even an actual big sign, just a sale price).
I hate to say this but is your library so neat that it doesn’t look used? Do you look like a happening kind of place?
