MS 51 Library Remote Learning Resource List

Since our physical building closed in March, Ms. Ahart has been collecting free reading resources online for students, so please use the Remote Learning Resource List to help you find your next great read. 

 

Borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks at Brooklyn Public Library 

Get an e-card from Brooklyn Public Library to borrow e-books and audiobooks and find lots of other wonderful free books and resources while we're all home during the school shutdown & COVID-19 pandemic. If you have any trouble with the online application, email Ms, Ahart to get connected directly to a Brooklyn Public Librarian who can help!

 

Library Book Returns

All library books will be due back when we return to school. Blended students can leave their library books in their homerooms on the day they come into the building, and Ms. Ahart will pick them up. Fully remote students and any student not returning to MS 51 this fall can drop off library books at the school between 8 am and 3 pm.
