Mission

The mission of the Ben Franklin High School library is to serve as an agency of both instruction and service to encourage reading for pleasure and information and to support the curricular goals of our school. The BFHS Library has a partnership with the University of New Orleans library. At UNO, Franklin students have access to print materials and a wealth of online databases. Ms. McHugh acts as a liaison between Franklin and the UNO library.
