    I hate to be a negative nelly about this, BUT not being open on Monday is a disadvantage to the high school students, who probably use the library more than anyone. It is a safe haven after school, and with the free computers, gives many kids an opportunity for research and homework that they couldn’t get at home. Sacrificing Monday for Saturday is too bad.

    Looks like they are closing on Mondays to make opening on Saturday do-able. I guess I’m fine with that trade-off. I will definitely use it more on Saturdays than on Mondays.

    Considering the behavior I see of the high school students in the library 3x a week, only one or two of them are doing work. The rest are swearing, messing around, kissing their girlfriends in the stacks and being a nuisance. They can keep doing that the other four days of the week.

  9. HOrray!!! I’ve been waiting for this. Thanks !

    The gain to the overall community outweighs any loss to the high school students. They have access on the other four days of the week and can study a little extra on the weekends now.

  11. When I was in high school, I used the library to do research for projects and then I would go home to type my papers on a typewriter or computer.

    Now, high school students (many of them) use computers in the library primarily to play, surfing MySpace and Facebook and hanging out with each other, often in a disruptive manner that other patrons do not appreciate.

    The concept of a publc library being a peaceful and quiet place of reading diligent study is gone. It’s a real shame.
