     ORTONA is engaged in 21st - Century lifelong learning which empowers our students and prepares them for real- world life experiences.  I support the curriculum and enhance the pleasure of finding something good to read.

    This guide provides information about the Ortona  ​Elementary library and available online resources.​​​

    Mission Statement:

    The mission of our library media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information and to provide students with the necessary skills to be future ready and globally competitive by using a variety of media resources.​​ 

    Media Center Procedures:

    • T​his year you may place a book on hold in Destiny and I will deliver it to you in your classroom or leave it in the front office for pick up if you are a Live student. ​
    • Remember your library card!  It's your passport to borrow library books.
    • Take good care of our books.
    • Return books on time. Books may be checked out for one week and may be renewed two times.
