Bennington High School Library

Welcome to the Bennington High School library page! Here you will find announcements about the happenings in the library as well as links to online research and books.

Meet the Librarian

Hi! I'm Mrs. Bruck, and I'm your library/media specialist. This is my first year at Bennington High School, and it's my first year in the library. I have fifteen years' experience teaching English, and I love spending my days in the high school. I am also the contact person for both the 3 Cs and Badger Service programs.

I live in Blair with my husband and three girls. In my spare time, I like to read (weird), exercise, cook and be outside in nature. That being said, you're actually more likely to find me watching my girls' activities or doing the laundry.

Please stop by the library if you need assistance or have any questions!
