Welcome to the OUSD School Libraries! The goal of Library Services is to provide a great school library for every student in OUSD.  Take a moment and click on your school library to view the resources available.

On this site you will find links to the school libraries and their online catalogs.  In addition, there are highly recommended resource links for homework help, student research, and general enrichment.  Use Encyclopedia Britannica, the premier standards based resource, for all of your informational needs and at the reading level you need.   Enjoy the many new ebooks for K-12 we have added this year from Encyclopedia Britannica and Gale, as well as the 9-12 Gale Educational databases.

All of these online resources are available to you from school or home twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.  (ask your school librarian for the passwords that may be needed). There is a wealth of resources available to you here, whether you are a student, teacher, parent or private citizen. 

We love volunteers to support our central and school libraries and professional library staff! Apply to volunteer through the Oakland Educational Fund. 
We love donations!  Your monthly, yearly or other donation goes directly to books (we receive 40% off) and resources for our students. Please select the Juvenile Justice Literacy Fund.
