The Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School Library is dedicated to providing a welcoming environment and a positive educational experience for all members of the BBCHS community. The library is a service-driven operation that encourages reading, serves the diverse needs of students, staff, and public, and supports the BBCHS curriculum.
I'd like to personally welcome everyone to the BBCHS library. Our excellent library staff is here to provide the support that our students, faculty and staff need in order to make the educational experience as fulfilling as possible. From providing thousands of books for pleasure reading or educational research, to enabling access to technology and a variety of academic databases, to giving teachers the help they need to maximize their teaching abilities, to providing a laid-back and comfortable learning and social environment, the BBCHS library is dedicated to you, the BBCHS family.
