Philosophy Statement

The American Embassy School libraries support the AES Mission for the students, faculty, staff and parents of the AES community. The libraries encourage “inspired lifelong learning” and support all areas of the AES curriculum. Literacy, literature appreciation, inquiry, and collaboration are key components of the library programs. Both libraries’ welcoming environments provide access to current, relevant resources.

Library Policy


Students may check out an unlimited number of items for a period of 3 weeks.  Parents may borrow 5 items for a period of 3 weeks. We appreciate early returns. 

Overdue Books

Students and parents will be reminded of their overdue books weekly.  Patrons with overdue items may not be allowed to check out books until all overdue books are returned, and patrons with long overdue books may lose access to Powerschool until their obligations are taken care of.  Books can be renewed online (before they are due) or in person (when they are overdue) to avoid any issues.

Lost Books

The library should be notified immediately if a book is lost.  A charge for the replacement cost of the book will be assessed.  If the book is found within a reasonable amount of time and before the item has been replaced, the money will be refunded.  


The MSHS Stein Library is your place to go to borrow great books, to conduct academic and personal research, and to have a comfortable, quiet place to read, study, or collaborate. The library has print resources (books, magazines, and newspapers) digital resources (Kindles, Sora books, RBdigital magazines, and databases), a knowledgeable staff, and a variety of physical spaces to meet your needs. This Libguides site can direct you to the resources that are available. The library is open on school days from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and from 9:00 to 4:00 most Saturdays.
