London Bookshop Libreria Is Offering A Refuge From The Digital World by Banning Mobile Phones and Tablets


Increasingly businesses are engaging with the need to establish policies surrounding the use of technology and especially mobile devices within their areas of activity. In what has been described as a bold move, a bookstore in London, Liberia, has declared itself a ‘digital detox zone’, banning its customers from using mobile phones and tablets within the shop. 

“The rule isn’t enforced in a draconian way, but we do want to create a welcoming space away from digital overload,” Libreria’s Paddy Butler (Via BBC)

How do you feel as a consumer being asked to not use your mobile device in any commercial space? Does it make a difference that it’s a bookshop? Are there any other spaces which seem more befitting such policies?
