• About the Library Media Center

     Welcome MAS Families!   

    In the library, we will be reading books, doing research, learning how to use libraries and online resources, and adding to the learning that is happening in the classroom.

    And of course, we will be checking out books!  

    I am excited for a new year of exploring, learning, playing and growing through reading.  Thank you for helping your child become a kind, safe, and responsible MAS reader!  

    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Cremin 
     
     
    Mission
     
    Here in the library, we strive to nurture students’ love of reading, inspire curiosity,  educate our children to become detectives in a world of print and media, and encourage each child to find his or her own unique way of contributing to the school community as well as the greater city of White Plains. 
     
    Schedule

    The MAS Library Media Center is open every day during school hours.

    Each class will come to the library on its assigned day for 40 minutes during the school's 6-day rotation.
     
    Circulation Policy 
     
    Each child will be able to take out one book at a time.  Books are due back the next time students have library.  A book may be renewed once as long as no one has requested the title.  A student will not be allowed to check out a book until the previous book they have borrowed has been returned.  If they forget their book at home, I will hold the requested book for a day.  Reminder notices are sent home just to help remind your child what book they borrowed and that it is now due back.  
     
    Fines and Lost Books

    There are no fines for returning a book late, but students will not be able to take new books home until the book is returned. Students are responsible for lost or damaged books and will be charged the replacement cost of the book.  If you would like to replace the book with the same title and edition (for example, a hardcover edition to replace a hardcover edition), that is also an option.
