About the BMS Media Center

The BMS Media Center currently houses over 10,000 books, including more than 2,500 fiction books, more than 700 reference books, and almost 7,000 nonfiction books! We also have the "Wildcat Reading Zone" for students to have a quiet place to read.

The media center opens each morning at 8:20 and closes each afternoon at 2:40. Students may visit the media center with their classes, or they may come individually with a teacher's pass. Books are checked out for two weeks at a time, and students may have up to two books out at a time.
