Ortiz MS Library Services and Resources

  • The Ortiz Middle School library has hundreds of books for our students to check out. Students can check out up to three books at one time. The library is open before school and during lunch. Teachers can also schedule times for their class to go to the library to check out books or conduct research for school projects. Laptops, Chromebooks, and iPads are also available for students to use in the classroom to work on projects or research topics.
