About the Keefe Library

Harry V. Keefe '39
In 1998, the generosity of Harry V. Keefe and family allowed the transformation of BLS's former cafeteria space into one of the finest secondary school libraries in the country. Special library features include an archive room, several classrooms, comfortable reading areas, study carrels and computer workstations. Numerous endowed book funds permit the acquisition of hundreds of new titles each year.
