At Junior High School 126 in Brooklyn, middle schoolers who want to use their library are only getting two, maybe three, hours of partial access a day! The Daily News reports that they "have severely limited access to the cozy, mural-painted reading spot this year so the three charters sharing the Greenpoint building can use the space for planning, meetings and small classes." One student whose local public library is in a dangerous area, lamented, "We have no way of researching. There's this whole library full of new books bought for our school, and we can't even use it."
