Summer Reading - 2017
The BCMS Library will be open each Wednesday, May 31 - August 2 during the summer months from 11:00 am-6:00 pm. Incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students can check out books and take AR tests. Due to construction, BCHS student can also bank up to 40 summer AR points at BCMS during these hours.

Note: The LMC will be closed Wednesday, June 14th, and Wednesday, July 5th.
BCMS students may "bank" up to half of their points for each Trimester.  For example, an incoming 6th grader will be required to read 20 points each trimester.  This means that they may bank up to 30 points for their 6th grade year which will be divided among the three trimesters.  
This is an excellent opportunity to keep reading skills sharp and to start out the school year ahead. 
Remember, the library is open on Wednesdays. However, if for some unexpected reason it will need to be closed other than the days already listed, a posting will be made on the BCMS website and the BCMS Library website.
