Welcome to the Ortho Library!

Ortho Book Exchange!

These books were donated to us and they’re for you, students! The idea behind the Book Exchange is that students choose a free book (first-come, first-served), come pick it up at school (or have it sent to your home, if necessary), read it and then bring it back to school when we return. Students will then choose a friend who they think will enjoy the book and pass it on!

Want to check out books from the Ortho Library? 
That's great! 
Since the school is shut down from December 10, 2020- January 11th, 2021, you will have to wait until then. In the meantime, get a book from the Ortho Book Exchange or use the Sora App in Schoology to read an ebook or audiobook!
You could also get books from the Los Angeles Public Library.
