CAS Library

WHERE TO GET BOOKS @ SCHOOL

Search for a book on the CAS LIBRARY CATALOG. Or come browse in person. 

Check out the SPECIAL COLLECTIONS around the school. There are sign out notebooks in each room where you can check out and return (just cross out your name/book title).

WHERE TO GET BOOKS (& more) OUTSIDE SCHOOL

Don’t have a MyLibraryNYC  library card? Do you really want to buy that book? Why not borrow it instead?

Please ask Lissa in 407 for an application or apply online. When you pick your card up, show them your City-as ID to get a special MyLibraryNYC card which means no more fines and a two-month borrowing period. It is good at all Brooklyn, Queens, and New York Public Libraries. (All teens in NYC were recently cleared of late fines.)

Pick it up at the library closest to your home or to City-As (Hudson Park Library, right next to the Park & Recreation Center).
