Welcome to the O. Henry Library!
Mrs. Brown is the OHE librarian and looks forward to working with you this 2017-2018 School Year.
The OHE Library is open daily from 7:45 am until 3:00 pm.
Primary grades may have 2 library books checked out at a time. Grades 3-6 may check out the number of books equal to their grade level. Library books are checked out for a two week period and may be renewed. No fines are charged for overdue books. Students with long overdue, lost, or damaged books lose check out privileges until books are paid for or returned. Schedule O. Henry has a modified fixed schedule to give students access to the library at point-of-need. Teachers may schedule classes in the library for lessons and research. Teachers may send individual students or small groups of up to 4 students to study or do research. Students need to have a library pass when coming to the library individually or in small groups.
The O. Henry Library program strives to
* teach information literacy in collaboration with classroom teachers within the context of the content curriculum
* encourage students to develop a love of reading
* provide resources and services to implement, support, and enrich classroom curriculum
