Libraries expand your world!

I pride myself in offering personalized reading, research, study, and life-long learning opportunities. World exploration partnerships are always customized and designed to match your unique interests and needs.

I’m here to help– whether you need a reading suggestion, help with a school project, or advice on a personal research goal. Let the library make your day a little brighter as I provide a calming oasis in a world that sometimes suffers from information overload. See you soon!

Daily Drop-In Library Visits: Between 8am and 3 pm students visiting the library for book return/checkout or for a consultation with me will request a yellow hall pass from their teacher. If the library doors are locked I am teaching a class, in a meeting, or away at lunch- and library supervision is unavailable since the library staff was reduced beginning with the 2022-23 school year. Teachers receive a daily email of the library schedule in order to minimize students who find the library locked unexpectedly.

Seminar: Students are welcome to visit and stay in the library to work on individual study during seminars on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday– provided a pre-pass was picked up from me that morning. Students may visit for a quick drop-in activity (return a book, renew a book, checkout a book and head back to class, pick up printing) with a yellow pass from the seminar teacher.

Reading Research Study Life

My passion is creating readers by matching them with just the right reading material. The Reading tab offers personalized reading suggestions, resources for discovering new titles and authors, and how-to advice for using e-books, audiobooks, and e-magazines.

Information is power. The Research tab contains links to our databases and encyclopedias–providing easy access to thousands of reliable sources. OE library also partners with local and state libraries for expanded access to even more specialized content.

Partnerships are the heart of the library’s existence. The Study tab contains links related to classroom assignments, online standardized test preparation resources (ACT, SAT, AP and more), online homework/study aides and resources for learning new languages.

Libraries are places of learning, exploration, and assistance even beyond academics. The Life tab sparks interest in learning that goes beyond the traditional academic curriculum, encouraging personal engagement and community connections. Have fun exploring!
