Oxford library is here for the community
- Students (and their families) can check out books for an extended period of time. However, popular titles and graphic novels should be turned in as soon as possible (please).
- Books will be distributed during the Materials Pick Up days. To request a specific title or topic (e.g. dinosaurs, unicorns, jokes, etc.) please fill out this order form.
- Provide an email of someone whom I can notify that a bag of books will be waiting at Pick Up.
- Contact librarian Karen Sasamoto with any questions or concerns.
Oxford Library Online has so Many Resources!

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?
