Find Out What is Happening in our BHS Community with our Library Curbside!

The library reflects our school-wide goal to include all students and families, whether it's through our Curbside events or one of our daily virtual opportunities: Book Clubs, DIY MakerSpace crafts, Comic Book Club, Games Club, Library Leaders, Bingo, Among Us, and more.
