    Its nice when you find something intriguing on a shelf to be able to settle into a comfortable seat nearby to examine it a little more.

    I believe quite a bit can be done with just shelving and architecture, but controlling noise while maintaining sufficient visibility might also require something like glass walls and/or acoustic tiles. Sound level meters + a thermometer type display (the higher the bar, the louder it is) could provide a visible reminder of how much sound is too much (and the value of "too much" can always be altered if necessary).
