This petition is going against the other one that wants to remove the automatic library door but I strongly object and stand up for the people who physically cannot stand up for example, and to keep the door because of its justified purpose. Our petition competition states that the Automatic Library Door takes 10 full seconds to open and sometimes requires a hand wave in order to do so. I can rightfully object this claim as it most certainly does not take 10 full seconds to open, it takes more like around 4-5 seconds to open and by the time it’s fully opened, you would’ve walked through it already anyways. Now onto the real points.

- The library door serves the people with the inability to open the door themselves an easy and effective way to fulfil their needs.

- How much of a pain is it really? When you’re minding your own business and taking note of the fact that it is an automatic door, does it really cause you so much trouble? Since when does taking an extra second to stand in front of a door add a major inconvenience to your day. 

- Okay, now let’s point out the obvious. IT’S A DOOR THAT OPENS FOR YOU. Modern day human beings tend to love “not having to do stuff” and having a door that requires no physical contact is definitely a big plus for us lazy daisys out in the crowd. (Also for people like me, you can pretend you have the force and open the door with your mind). Okay, I am aware that automatic doors have been around for over a decade now and by no means are a super modern technological advancement but again, OPENS FOR YOU - you don’t have to do anything but wait. And how long would it take for you to grab that handle and open it yourself versus doing absolutely nothing for one second then walking through the door. 

So my main point is, get real guys. This door has huge advantages for certain people and it may be a minor inconvenience to most other people do just grow up and deal with it. Sure, keeping the door latched open isn’t a bad idea but who could ever go wrong with a door that requires very minimal effort from the user in order to do its one and only job. Sign below.
