Harry V. Keefe Library, Boston Latin School: Keefe Home

Welcome to the Keefe Library at Boston Latin School!

Celebrate Pride Month! Look for these great books in Hoopla.

Latest from the Keefe Library

Link to Hope & Justice in Uncertain Times  (a public declamation video) along with resources for students, families and faculty.

Update: The events of late May have brought great pain to our country, and we are committed to addressing this as a school community. When we return in the fall--in whatever form that takes--we will take part in the difficult but vital conversations that need to happen. In order to facilitate these discussions, we will be adding an article to our BLS Essential Summer Reads. We will take time to look carefully and will be in touch later in the summer with a shared reading on the vital topics of equity, race, and justice. Read the full message.
