Summertime Reading

Check out Library Books for the Summer Break!

Looking for a good summer read? Be sure to stop by the library before we break for the summer. Returning students whose library accounts are in good standing will be able to check out books from BBA's library for the summer. For your convenience and so that other students can have access to them, BBA books may be returned to the Manchester Community Library during the summer.

BBA Summer Reading 2018

Summer Reading assignments for incoming freshmen, AP students and Model UN students will be posted on the BBA website.

Students in 10th -12th grade will select a book from the attached reading list. Each book is sponsored by one or more faculty member. When we return to school in the fall there will be a designated campus-wide discussion time when all book groups meet to discuss their books. Sign up for your book here.

A limited number of copies of all books will be available for checkout from our library before the break. There will also be copies available for checkout from the Manchester Community Library as well as for purchase from Northshire Bookstore. In some cases, there are downloadable audiobooks available. If students have any difficulties finding a copy of their book or need help accessing an audio version, they should email Mrs. Putney at
