Welcome to the Branciforte Middle School Library
The Branciforte Middle School Library is a safe space where all students are encouraged to learn, explore, reflect and create.
We read to increase empathy, expand understanding, and develop ourselves as critical thinkers, consumers, and producers of content.  
Teachers and librarians work together and collaborate to strengthen 21st Century skills across the curriculum and ensure that students are prepared for high school, college, and career.
