The ACA library has something for everyone! Stop by to select from the recently added items in the parent resource center, new non-fiction titles and stacks of popular fiction. Rewarding programs for readers from kindergarten to high school are advertised on the bulletin board across the hall from the library. As always, please visit the library often, return books on time, and limit your checkouts to a maximum of 8 items out. Student helpers will show you how to check out your books.
Story times in our library:

Welcome to Oregon Battle of the Books!
The Oregon Battle of the Books, OBOB, is a statewide voluntary reading motivation and comprehension program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries in conjunction with a Library Services and Technology Act grant. Students in 3rd-12th grade, regardless of ability, are exposed to quality literature representing a variety of literary styles and viewpoints. The mission is to encourage and recognize students who enjoy reading, to broaden reading interests, to increase reading comprehension, promote academic excellence, and to promote cooperative learning and teamwork among students.
Now is the time to start reading those titles, form a team and get ready to have fun. Coaches for each age division as well as meeting times will be posted on the bulletin board and this site by November 1st. Booklists are online, posted on the ACA bulletin board and on bookmarks in the library.
ONLINE RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
Oregon City School District provides a number of online databases, available to all students. These resources are educationally appropriate, a great starting place for student research. Visit World Book Online, Culture-Grams, and Tumble, to name a few. Passwords and login information to be used from any computer can be found on the goldenrod bookmarks located on the library desk, study hall counter or from your ES.
