The library is open most days for independent study before school, during brunch & lunch, and for 30 minutes after school. Students may come to the library during the school day with a teacher's pass. 

Services in the library include but are not limited to: 

Checking out fiction and non-fiction books for research, assigned or independent reading

Independent and small, quiet group study

Printer for school work (B&W only)

The library may be closed without notice if a teacher or staff member has reserved the space for classes or meetings. 

Happy Reading, Falcons!  I am here to help you with your school work needs, so please ask if you need help finding books or other materials.

 The databases below are part of California's K-12 Online Content Project.  Access them here or via your Clever portal.  

 

Use these databases when you want information on any topic or for any project or homework requiring research.  If needed, the login information can be found by hovering over the little ? in a circle icon that is displayed under the widget link in the CUSD Library Resources section of your Clever portal. 

Many of these databases integrate with Google Classroom for ease of use also.  These databases are provided by the California State Library and the Department of Education since the 2018-19 school year. 

CA Young Reader medal (CYRM) 2022-2023

AOMS Library is offering the California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program is open to all students.  We are promoting the program via the English Language Arts classes.  Your English teacher may give you credit for completing the program too!  

This is a great annual program where only students are allowed to vote on the winning books.  No adults are allowed to vote, so YOU, students, determine the winning titles!  This gives you a voice in recommending great books for kids to read!  The CA Young Reader Medal is a prestigious award and great honor for the authors also!  

Students:  If you wish to participate, you need to read the three (3) books in one of the categories suitable for your grade level  (see below for the titles).   As you finish reading each of the three books,  you complete a quiz in the library. 

Students who successfully complete the reading and quizzes will vote for their favorite title at a special event in March.

Happy Reading!
