OUR LIBRARY

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 STARreading to help monitor our student’s reading comprehension and grade levels.  

Library Hours
Monday- 8:00 - 3:30

Summer Library Hours
Summer AR testing will take place in our Library. Starting Tuesday, June 5, the Library/AR will be open every Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., every Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., and every Thursday from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., unless otherwise posted. The Library/AR will be closed the week of July 4. Remember to check the school website for any changes in the summer schedule. The last day to take AR tests will be July 26. All books must be returned to the library by July 26. Students in K5- 5th grade may check out 2 books at a time. Please remember that the AR/Library is a testing area. Parents are not allowed in the designated AR testing area. All children must be accompanied by an adult while searching for books.

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.  To create your Home Connect account, please click here.
