How you can help us & your students!

Will you take a moment and tell us about your assignment?

If you are planning an assignment that requires students to use library resources, please let us know as soon as you can.

Teachers are busy, so we've made it easy to let us know about an upcoming assignment.


Choose one of these easy ways to let us know:
  • Via email to alattinville@ocln.org with a Subject line of "Upcoming Assignment"


With advanced notice, we can be better prepared to help your students find what they need, when they need it. We can highlight books, DVDs, and other materials that will support your lessons and the Common Core Curriculum in general.

If you assign annual projects, we would love to hear about any suggestions that you have for additions to our collection.

When teachers and public librarians work together, every student succeeds!


Classroom Visits & Pathfinders

If you have an upcoming assignment, we are happy to make classroom visits to talk about library materials, explain how to use the online catalog and demonstrate our databases.

If you assign annual projects, we're happy to create Pathfinders for your students. Pathfinders can help students navigate the wide variety of choices the library and the internet have to offer. Just let us know!

Pathfinder Example: PathfinderAncientCivilizations-2012 - PDF

We are also available for classroom visits to support literacy. Examples of this are Book Talks and Story Times as well as promotion of summer reading.
