The library at Brainerd Baptist School is a great resource for our students, teachers and parents. It is the goal of our library to help foster a life-long love of reading. Our students begin going to library in K3 and start checking out books in K4. The library works very closely with the classroom teachers to help make sure our students are checking out age-appropriate books. We also use Accelerated Reader and STAR reading to help monitor our student's reading comprehension and grade levels. Our library is open after school till 4:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Brainerd Baptist parents now have the ability to search our library database from anywhere in the world. You may see if our library has a book you are looking for by clicking here.
One of the most powerful features of our AR program is the Home Connect portion. From your house you may see your child's progress toward their reading goals, conduct book searches using the AR Bookfinder, review results of AR quizzes, sign up for email notification on your child's quizzes, and much, much more.
