Mr. White staffs our library, and comes to us from the Los Angeles Public Libraries, and Downey and El Segundo School Districts. Come see Mr. White for book recommendations or for help with utilizing library resources.

Our students utilize the library to check out books, conduct research, use our computer lab, and develop information literacy skills. The library's collection consists of over 16,000 items, including fiction, nonfiction, reference materials, magazines, and books for all levels of readers. We also feature a textbook collection which students can use for study.

The MBMS library offers Overdrive, our Digital Library. Students can access the Digital library using the link below, and login with their student number. Overdrive is available from any online device, iPad, smartphone, computer or tablet. Book check-in is automatic, so no need to worry about late books.
