BHS now has a Little Free Library in front of our building on 7th street! The main purpose is to encourage BHS students to read, but because a LFL is a “take a book, leave a book” philosophy, you might find literature from all genres and levels. Feel free to grab a good read for yourself and exchange with one you think students might find interesting.
And the beautiful box was decorated by our very own, Paul Noot (BHS Art teacher).
