Oakridge Library is the beating heart of our school where students learn the skills to evaluate information for accuracy, validity, social and cultural context, and appropriateness for need. During storytimes, they contribute to discussions in which multiple viewpoints are expressed. Their curiosity flourishes by reading widely and deeply, and they develop the intrinsic motivation that can lead to a lifelong love of reading.
Students can access the library’s resources via Canvas
or click here for our catalog in Follett Destiny Discover.
Click here for ebooks and databases in MackinVia.
- Family and friends book clubs. Read, listen and talk about a book together. Our library has book club sets (print and ebooks). Contact Ms. Bentall for more information.
- Individualized Help
- Readers’ Advisory (What to read next?)
- Research (access to databases and search strategies)
- Email librarian: Karen.Bentall@apsva.us

I leave Jordan with a ❤️full of gratitude & a mind full of promise that our partnership with @QRFoundation will bring to children. Jordan welcomed so many refugees that some public schools have 2 shifts. Happy to report that many are getting #school#libraries for the first time https://t.co/JyySDeMWPv

RT @whatSFSaid: Children's literature is often dismissed as a lesser form, not even literature at all. But the books we love when we're you…

A #library for every school is becoming more common globally. #Vietnam is one recent stellar example of school libraries for all & is implementing national standards. @QRFoundation is a visionary force in Jordan for literacy & libraries. For more examples see @IFLA https://t.co/WpZZXxH8Cn
