Library/Textbook District Policy

Here are the CUSD policies on library books and textbooks.


The Orange County Public Library offers many resources for students. They have a fantastic list of databases that allows students to conduct research from any computer with internet access. Databases allows students to find e-reference books, magazine & newspaper articles, videos, pictures, primary sources and more. If students need help using these resources, stop by the library and I will be more than happy to help out.

My personal favorite go-to website is EasyBib.  It's super easy to use, but if you need help I will be more than happy to help show you how to use this excellent resource.

Another excellent resource for you is the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL).
