The BUSD library program fosters curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, and a love of reading. Our library services provide a wide range of print and digital books, online resources, and curricular programming to address every student’s academic and independent reading needs and nurture a mindset of lifelong learning. We work with classroom teachers, staff and families to deepen reading engagement, build information literacy and digital citizenship, and improve student achievement and engagement for each and every student. Thanks to the support of the Berkeley community and the Berkeley Schools Excellence Project (BSEP), there is ongoing funding for library staffing and resources in every BUSD public school.
