Funded by a grant from the Harcourt General Charitable Foundation, the library opened in September 1998. BAA’s library holds an exemplary collection of curricular materials, as well as a rich fine arts collection that includes books, periodicals, recordings, art prints and posters, slides and video tapes. The collection includes extensive literature, history and multicultural materials, as well as over 500 classical music CDs on loan during the school year from the Tanglewood Music Center. A collection of over 5,000 slides donated by the Museum of Fine Arts is available for loan to the public.

Educators from Massachusetts are welcome visit the BAA Library.
