Latest from the Keefe Library

Study hall

The Keefe Library is open to study hall students during R1, 2, 3, 4, 6 & 7. Space is limited so prior sign-up is required. Students new to BLS will need to create an account on Oculus (look for the link on SIS). After requesting an account, check your email SPAM folder (under More in your BPS gmail) to retrieve your activation code. More information about using the Keefe Library space and resources can be found in the student handbook. The Keefe Library will open to regular study hall students in grades V-I on (date tbd).

  • Students in Class I-V may come to the library for study hall and sit where they like. Visit SIS and click on the link for Oculus. Attendance will be shared with study hall teachers. Check in at the purple circulation desk.
  • Students in Class VI may begin coming to the library for study hall on Monday, October 17 (after the first progress reports go home). They must sit in the 7th grade area. All new Class VI students will need to visit SIS and click on the link Oculus Account Creation. Check in at the purple desk.

Before and after school

The Keefe Library is open and staffed by one of our two librarians every day from 7:25am - 4:00 pm. Students can always stop in (with a pass from a staff member) to check out or borrow books or to print. The library will open for after school hours beginning on (TBD). Once we are open after school, all students may sign up (including members of Class VI).

  • Before school All students may stop by the library before homeroom to ask questions, pick up or drop off books, borrow a Chromebook, or print.
  • After school After school attendance is capped at 100 students. We ask that students show consideration and respect for others, coming to the library after school to use the space and resources wisely. Visit SIS and click on the link for Keefe After School hours to sign up for a spot. Check in at the purple desk when you arrive.
