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.

A perfect exchange! A friendly day in a city that welcomed this stranger with open arms. Thank you #HoChiMinh!

Three times today I was stopped by girls who asked if they could practice English on me (perhaps a lone white woman of a certain age is a good bet for that?) I said yes if I could ask them about #reading. I got some glimpses into what they think about #reading & #SchoolLibraries https://t.co/xKqfQ8a2yn
