Welcome to the BMS Library
Thank you for visiting the Berry Middle School library webpage. We are pleased to serve more than 1,200 Hoover middle schoolers in grades 6-8.
Our collection includes thousands of books across a diverse range of genres, authors, titles, reading levels, topics, and formats, including traditional books, e-books, audiobooks, and interactive books. Our beautiful facility includes state-of-the-art technology and seating capacity for multiple classes in our learning commons, mediascape, and two computer labs.
2020 Reading Challenge
In order to earn our annual school-wide field trip to the Alabama Theater, students and staff must collectively read and log 12,000 books. Students should aim to read at least 10 books this school year at or above their reading level and can log their titles here.
Students may also choose to accept the optional genre challenge and will need to read 20 books - one from each of the categories on the chart below. Please note that you cannot use the same book for multiple squares. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the year for students who complete this challenge. Also, we will reward the top 5% of students who have read the most books. The completed chart should be turned in to the library after January 1, 2020, and students are encouraged to stop by the library for assistance.
