The mission of the BLS library is based on the American Association of School Librarians  Framework Foundations: Inquire, Include, Collaborate, and Curate. 

The library aims to
  • Inspire a love of reading and a deep curiosity about the world.
  • Engage students as thoughtful and discerning consumers of information in and out of school.
  • Support teachers across content areas by increasing access to high-quality materials.
  • Create a balanced collection that affirms the diverse identities of our students while introducing them to new perspectives.

We believe that a strong school library is critical infrastructure that supports the work of teachers and students in every division.


The BLS Library’s collection includes over 4,000 print sources. These include classic and contemporary fiction books, curriculum related nonfiction books, and general reference sources. Students also have access to Britannica School and ebook collections on campus and from home.

Parents, students, and teachers can search the library collection through our online catalog from the Follett Destiny system. Follow the link in the resources section to access the catalog. Students can also log in to this website to check their current check out status. For support logging in, contact Ms. Goodlaxson.

Our Collection

The BLS Library Collection has been carefully curated to meet the information needs of our students. It includes materials for students in grades 1-12 at a variety of reading levels, including decodable books, leveled readers, graphic novels, transitional chapter books, novels, and a wide spectrum of nonfiction texts. We specifically seek out books that are neurodiversity-affirming and/or portray learning differences in a positive light.

Many of the newest titles in our collection are thanks to generous donations. We maintain an active wish list through We thank you in advance for considering a contribution to our ever-evolving collection.
