RBHS Library Summer Opening

A message from your high school librarian: I will be at school next Monday, June 28th from 10-12ish so that anyone who wants to return books checked out over the summer can return them and or swap them out for some new titles (or if you want to get some books for the first time this summer). Incoming freshmen, you are already in the library’s circulation program so you’re included in this offer! Remember, if you want to return RBHS Library materials over the summer when i’m not three, you can always return them to the high school office Monday-Thursday or even to the Roanoke or Benson branches of the Illinois Prairie District. Feel free to email me if you have questions -Mr. Atteberry (
