NEWS FROM THE LIBRARY
We are thrilled to announce that the BHS Makerspace is up and running!! What is a Makerspace? It's "a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge" (Dictionary.com). Check out this video here. Stop by the Library Seminar room to check out all the activities!
Student Library Board
Mrs. Kloepfer is looking for some students to help with choosing what books we order, organizing student events, and helping with our Makerspace. If interested, please see Mrs. Kloepfer in the library!
