    More help is on the way for Chicago students who need a hand with their homework.

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Thursday announced an expansion to the "Teacher in the Library" program. The privately-funded service already helps children at 57 Chicago libraries.

    Teachers will soon be available after school hours in 21 additional libraries.

    "Not only will we have it in every library, there will be some libraries, because of the extensiveness, you'll need two type of teachers in the library. We will now be able to do that," said Emanuel.

    Students are encouraged to bring their homework from any subject for after school help. Teachers in the Library provides assistance on a variety of topics for students of all ages, including high school students who need help understanding more difficult subjects or writing papers.

    The expansion should be in place by next fall.
