Oxford Library Online has so Many Resources!
Oxford’s lovely library is on the basement level—but its rooms have expanded into cyberspace. Librarian Karen Sasamoto maintains an Oxford Library site as part of the Libraries portal of the BUSD website. It’s a portal to a number of online resources that are free to the Oxford community.
To get to there, click “→ Library Site” on the navigation bar at the top
The Oxford library site includes a Reading Suggestions database organized by topic, our Library Catalog, a robust Research portal with World Book Encyclopedia/Enciclopedia Estudiantil and other tools, our Class Projects portal, Google Classroom and many STEM resources.
What’s at Tales2Go for elementary school students
Also available in our library portal: more than 4,000 audiobooks, for listening via computer, tablet or phone, thanks to BUSD Library’s Tales2go account.
See the BUSD Library’s Tales2go page for login and easy instructions (written or video).
Read Widely and Diversely!
Reading with your student is the most important activity you can do with your child to support their education. For example, did you know children understand stories read aloud at a higher comprehension level than what they can read on their own?
