Parent Reference Library

Osgoode Public School has established a Parent Reference Library which can be used by parents looking for specific material related to children and/or school. The Osgoode Public School Parent Reference Library now has over 60 books. The collection is housed in a locked cabinet in the small conference in the school's main office. Books can be signed out by parents during school hours. You are invited to check out the recently updated bibliography below. Requests for books can also be sent through students. If there is a book that you would like to read, please send a note with your child. The book will be signed out in your name and sent home. This is an excellent collection of resources so generously provided by our School Council's fundraising efforts and by a ministry grant.
