Parents

At Allen-Stevenson we welcome parents into the Tisch Library Media Center.  Stop by to check out materials or to chat with a librarian about children’s books. Consider coming to work with us. The library is a hub of activity and we couldn’t keep it all going without the help of our amazing library volunteers! We have included some resources below that will help you to make the most of the library and become a media savvy parent. If there are other kinds of resources that you would like to see on this page, please let us know.

Set Up Your Own Library Account

Every week your son brings home a few books that he has chosen at the library. What you may not realize is that you can sign up for your own account and check out unlimited books to take home to your son! We also give you unlimited time to enjoy the books and just ask that you return the books when you have finished with them. All the research shows that surrounding your son with great books is the surest way to turn him into an avid reader and this is an easy way to do it.

Kindles

The library has a set of kindle paperwhites for loan to boys in the Middle and Upper schools. Boys can choose up to three books from our Overdrive eBook collection that we will load onto the paperwhite for them.

Boys and parents must fill out a Kindle User Agreement. We keep this agreement on file for the remainder of his time at A-S. 


Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
