Sharing a love of reading

The Oak Lawn Library/Media Center serves teachers and students with great reading and research materials!  

Our media center Destiny Library Catalog is available online from anywhere.  Universal Search allows you to search our library catalog to see what books we have.  With your own password (which you can get from Mrs. Altena), you can add holds to books, write reviews of books you read, access our databases,  find out what you have currently checked out, and so much more!

Looking for information about States or Countries?

Try Culturegrams, a social studies resource of maps, recipes, graphs and charts, music, and many customs from all over the world. 

Students may use it for research; teachers may use it to create great lessons for the classroom.  Slide shows and videos clips are an important part of this site.
