What's going on in the OPE Library?
Teachers are welcome to self-check out materials from the library at any time, and are encouraged to suggest specific materials be acquired that support their lessons.

As a courtesy to other classes, and for safety reasons, students should not be sent to work in the library if not supervised by a staff member, or during another scheduled class visit.
