Visiting BHS: General Info

What to Expect

  • It is very cold in our library. Please bring a sweater!
  • No food, drink, or gum is allowed in our library. Please do not show up to class with coffee or snacks!
  • You may can take notes on a notepad or laptop. No pens are allowed in the library.
  • You can take photographs for research purposes. We’ll have one digital camera available, but feel free to bring your own digital camera or smartphone.

Why All the Rules?

Your school or public library probably doesn’t have the same rules that we do at BHS. That’s because our library is a reading room for special collections and archival material. These collections are old, rare, unique or valuable. Most of them cannot be replaced, so we have to be extra careful.
