Find out what’s happening at your library! Get reading recommendations from our librarians, and connect with resources to help with homework. Join us for volunteer and internship opportunities to help build your skills – and your resume.
If you want to check out books, movies, and more, you'll need a BPL library card. Teens 13 and older can apply for their own card - all you need is a school ID, a report card (don't worry we look at your grades), or working papers. Find out how to get one here . Lose your card? Is yours expired? Get all the info you need with our Library Card Help Page.
Need help researching an assignment, searching for an ancestor or writing a paper? BPL’s Book a Librarian allows you to reserve a free half hour virtual session with a professional reference librarian.
Looking for some homework help? Brainfuse HelpNow offers personalized academic assistance in core subjects (math, reading, writing, science), a 24/7 Writing Lab, academic content and practice tests for skills-building (including SAT preparation), and much more. Live tutoring from Brainfuse experts is available from 2:00 PM - 11:00 PM.
Still not what you need? BPL Online resources have databases and resources that can help discover whatever you need!
