The whole school is excited about our upcoming Book Fair. An amazing selection of books is headed our way! At the Book Fair you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents. Mark your calendar for our Family Event where the whole family can join in the fun. There will also be a special table for Grandparents to donate books to the library in your students honor. You can also contribute books to your child's classroom library. The Book Fair is a great way to get everyone excited about reading. Here's a brief video that highlights the big dreams that can be realized through family reading: http://www.scholastic.com/bookfairs/family

Attention! Mr. Corcoran will be duct taped to the wall very soon! Do I have your attention? If our school meets our sales goal of $12,500.00 next week in the book fair each student will be given a piece of duct tape to help tape Mr. Corcoran to a wall. Come support the book fair and help us reach our goal.
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.
