Just in time for the new school year a new library is now open in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel was at Saturday's ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The library is next to the new Back of the Yards High School and is the first full-service library in the area since the old one closed in 2011.

It has a community room, a media lab for technology training and 25 computers.

There will also be a certified teacher on hand after school to help students with their homework.
