Well, that didn’t last long.

The new Brookfield Library looks great on the outside and is nice on the inside, with amenities like quiet study rooms and plenty of quiet places to work.

But don’t go in the afternoons because it turns into Romper Room.

Unsupervised kids are making for a loud environment — a very loud environment.

We’ve waited for this library for a long time, a facility that can easily go up against modern libraries in neighboring suburbs and make us proud.

But it’s going to be difficult to enjoy it with all the noise. Good luck.
