CAS Reads

WAYS TO FIND BOOKS HERE & BEYOND

OUR CITY-AS CATALOG – Search for books in the City-As Library in Room 407.

NYPL CATALOG – Search for books at the New York Public library; Use your My Library NYC library card (good for ALL Queens/Brooklyn/Bronx/SI public libraries) to place a hold to be delivered to Hudson Park Library, right next to the Park & Rec center.

Don’t have a MyLibraryNYC  library card? Please come by and ask Mingzhu or Lissa for an application. This special card means no more fines and a two-month borrowing period! Don’t miss out having millions of books, ebooks, and audiobooks at your fingertips for free. Free access to information is one of the cornerstones of democracy. Take part! Do you really want to buy that book? Borrow it instead…

Check out the ADVISORY LIBRARIES in 206, 303, 304, 305, 404, 405, 501, 502, 503, 504 and 508. There are sign out notebooks in each room where you can check out and return (just cross out you name/book title).
