    Summer Reading Lists & Summer Library Hours!

    Follow the BHS Library on Twitter!


    The Seattle Public Library website now makes it easier to explore the many formats of books and media we offer! Explore staff picks, book lists for kids and teens, and options for downloads and streaming.


    We have spent the last week getting books into students' hands as we plan for fantastic reading on vacation. Students are invited to Summer Library Hours on August 16th from 1-3 to check out more books and participate in planned events and play Virtual Reality with professors from the University of Washington!   More info on this FLYER.

    We have also started Library Leaders, Eager Beaver Readers, and Maker programs for students who would like to get more involved in the library.  View the links below for important details and descriptions of summer opportunities.

    Ms. Wood and I would like to thank all the staff, students, and community for their support and kindness this year. Have a great summer and like our science teacher, Mr. Gundle- we hope you find your stack of books to read this summer!

    The Ballard High School library is in transformation mode!
    We have replaced the carpet, worked on connectivity and electricity, and we are now designing the space. We have been working with Shelly Stock of Stock & Associates and we are getting student feedback on furniture, color swatches, and what makes the space more functional for learning.

    Visit the Library Photo Gallery!


    #WhatAreYouReading- this is the question every person connected to Ballard High School should be discussing. We believe that the fastest way to connect with people and positively change the world is to discuss the books and stories that matter to us most. If you need any ideas for books to read or purchase please go to our Amazon or Queen Anne Book Company Wishlists.

    We Won! Beaver Community!

    I am thrilled to announce that we won the $100,000 grant award from Farmer's Insurance! The award was unveiled at a faux assembly for 9th graders at the end of the school day today where Ms. Chambers was surprised by her family, district officials and representatives from Farmer's Insurance.  View Video!

    Structural work will take place and equipment will be received sometime in 2018 and we anticipate the Learning Commons being 100% transformed by the start of the 2019-20 school year.

    Thank you to every one who voted! Our community is the best and it is so, so clear that it is Always Great to be a Beaver!!   Keven Wynkoop
