Corcoran Library

More than just a collection of books or a place to study, the Corcoran Library plays a key role in the life of a BC High student. It is constantly buzzing with young men as they tackle group projects, discuss what they are reading and watching, work through math problems, or quickly print an essay just in time for class. Students of all ages and interests flock to the library first thing in the morning, during lunch and after last bell to study, meet and explore.
The Corcoran Library is open to students, faculty and staff members. Our hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.Monday through Friday. The Library Council meets every Friday at 8 a.m. in the Great Books Room.
