Oakridge Library has more than 26,000 resources (mostly books!). It 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.
