The Boys’ Brigade has published hundreds of titles catering for both the leader and the young person. BB Supplies and independent publishers have also published books intended as resources and gifts, and one of the early objectives of The Boys’ Brigade was to promote and encourage reading. The Christmas gift books in the late 1890s were intended to encourage boys to read, and additionally many early BB Companies had lending libraries and reading rooms. 

Some BB publications can be found in the links, and the most recent additions to the library are included below.
