Her: Can I help you, sir?
Me: I'm looking for a table.
Her: Why you need table?
Me: To read my book. [I pull my book out of my laptop bag.]
Her: You cannot read your book here.

Her: You can only read library books here.
Me: But I just want to sit for a few hours and read my book.
Her: You can't do that in library.
Her: You can read your book in coffeeshop.
