The BFS at 150 History Book - "150 Years of Light"
To recognize our 150 years of Quaker education in Downtown Brooklyn, the School has embarked on an exciting and important project, the Brooklyn Friends School Sesquicentennial History Book. We will publish it to formally document our rich history, the evolution of our extraordinary academic program, our relationship with the Brooklyn and New York City communities and the impact that a Quaker values-based education has had on thousands of Brooklyn Friends students over the last century and a half.
The Brooklyn Friends School Sesquicentennial History Book will be published in print and online to be shared with our entire community. With photos, stories, anecdotes and memories, the history book will be a keepsake for anyone who loves Brooklyn Friends School. The book will be published this winter. It will be launched at a community celebration of our history at the Brooklyn Historical Society on Monday, January 29, 2018 at 6:30pm.
