The Riverside Brookfield High School library is a great place for students to do homework, work on projects and of course read. Just this year, the library’s hours have been cut and it is now only open until 3:45 p.m. instead of 4:00 p.m. after school.

Students have also requested longer library hours before and after school.

“Our closing would be 4:00 p.m. However, our staff prohibits that at this point due to scheduling,” said library assistant Noelle Bajohr.

The library is used very frequently and most students believe more time in the library would be beneficial.

“Often times I will have a student per minute come in and by 7:15, I have 15 students here,” said Bajohr.

A large population of students in the RBHS community do not have access to a safe and quiet place after school, so the library is always in use.

“I absolutely think that the library is a good safe place for students. Any student who comes into the library is guaranteed quiet,” said Bajohr.
The library hours after school may be stretched as the school year continues.
