  • For a list of kid-friendly library databases, click here.
    • Our library databases search a number of resources that can be used to do research for school projects. Many of the articles and resources that you can find in a database come from print resources like books, newspapers, magazines, and journals.  If you are using these databases outside of the library, you will need your library card number and PIN to log in. (First time users: Your PIN is "ocln".) If you need help getting started, the Children's Room and Reference staff are happy to help.
