ALB Reading Resources
Did you know that students can check out books from our Cobb public libraries using their MCS district ID number and their 4 digit birth month and day (Example: Feb. 4 would be 0204)? No card is needed with the student PASS program!
In addition to checking out books online and in person at the public library, students can also read free ebooks online at www.myon.com. To login, type Get Georgia Reading as the school name, the username is mariettacity, and the password is read!
Then, to be eligible for prizes and recognition by the public library, students should keep track of their books and reading minutes on Bibliosnasium by clicking on the "log minutes" link on www.cobbcat.org/srp or on the Marietta Summer Reading web site which is mcsreading.weebly.com. The Biblionasium username is mcs+IDnumber (Example: mcs30152) and the password is read2019. Happy Reading! (See links on sidebar menu for easy access)
The mission of the Media Center is to support the curriculum of the school. Our Media Center contains over 14,000 items of age-appropriate material to fulfill this mission. Audiovisual equipment, housed in the Media Center, is available for teachers to use in the classroom.
Instruction is given in Information Literacy Skills and Internet Safety. Technology is integrated into all Media Lessons and practice is achieved through projects assigned by the classroom teachers.
Borrowing PrivilegesStudents in kindergarten, first, and second grades may keep library materials for one week. Students in third, fourth, and fifth grades have a two week check out period. We do not charge overdue fines; however, any item that is lost or damaged must be paid for.
ResourcesStudents use Destiny, our online library catalog, to locate materials in the Media Center. Destiny is available for students and teachers on computers located in the Media Center and in each classroom through the school network.
All students participate in the Marietta Reads initiative which encourages literacy and a love of reading throughout the community.
