library-2Library provides all students K-5 with skill in acquiring information, appreciation of literature and the resources to gain knowledge. Our librarians make the library a wonderful place to visit with great recommendations on books and captivating book reading/story telling. Teachers also schedule special project visits for more lengthy library-based work.

The lower grades begin their library time with a story read by our librarian. After discussing the story, the children have an opportunity to explore the library and check out books. The older grades learn how the library is organized, and home their skills using reference books and online sources. Research projects are developed collaboratively by the librarian and the upper grade teachers.

The library offers approximately 12,000 print and AV resources, as well as a number of online research tools: OUSD Library Resources.

Funding for new books and equipment comes from the fall and spring book fairs, PTA funds, and generous annual contributions, as well as OUSD funds from the school budget. Many thanks to the team of parent volunteers who help shelve and check out books each week! If you would like to volunteer, please contact the library volunteer coordinator at or check in at the office.
