October 2017


Please note that library hours have changed.  We now close at 2:30. 

Students are encouraged to suggest purchases for the library.  Many of our most popular books have been purchased at the suggestion of students.

Do you know that we have DVDs?  We have a selection of movies and documentaries that may be signed out for private use.  These are not licensed for group viewing.  (The videos that the teachers show to you in class have special licensing that allows for group viewing.)  We also have audiobooks on CD that you may borrow, and we even have a couple of books in Braille.

Do you know that you can use your Western Counties Regional Library card online to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from the digital collection?  When you borrow an audiobook this way, you can listen to it on devices that play mp3s.    Link:  HERE.    If you need help with using your public library card online, feel free to ask for help at the BMHS Library desk. 

Do you know that the local Canada Post offices sell used books for 25 cents?  The money goes to the IWK.  Some of the books in the BMHS Library were purchased at Canada Post.

Do you know that you can get a Halifax Public Library card using the online service?  You can download videos, audiobooks, and ebooks free of charge.  You can also use the Proquest database--a great source of information when you are doing projects.
