The New Rochelle school district has shuttered the library at New Rochelle High School until further notice due to repeated and unchecked incidents of vandalism during the school day, sources say.
One source familiar with the situation tells Talk of the Sound that the library has repeatedly been “trashed” by students leading to the decision today to close the library until further notice. Unable to contain the problem, the matter was referred by Security Director Bruce Daniele to Assistant Superintendent John Quinn who made the decision to close the library.
The library services as a resource to assist students with successful completion of school assignments, according to the New Rochelle High School web site. Students are often required to use library resources to research school work. It remains to be seen what alternatives will be arranged for students seeking to complete class assignments.
