The correct response is surely to turn on ones desk lamp and continue reading.

I'm sure Debrettes have the answer, depending on the rank (and library ticket status) of said lady

As a French dancer, I think her status is below an Earl.

That probably depends on whether you know the routine or not. Thanks for the most surreal lj post in my catching up two weeks of stuff!!
