Due to Massachusetts school district's currently on summer break, Ask a School Librarian will be monitored weekly. We will be back in the Fall ready to support students and teachers.
Providing support for students and teachers during school closures.
Dear Massachusetts Students & Educators,
The Massachusetts School Library Association (MSLA) and Massachusetts Library System (MLS) are collaborating to ensure all students and teachers have the services of a school librarian to find high-quality information, tools, and strategies to continue developing media literacy and research skills. On this page are digital resources available to each person in Massachusetts either through the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners or through the Boston Public Library with an e-card.
We are also offering a virtual "Ask a School Librarian" service. Simply fill out the form; all questions and comments will receive a response from participating school librarians.
