Students can use their course schedule and the textbook list to order their 2023-2024 textbooks. For your convenience, OLP has partnered with Follett Virtual Bookstores as our official source for textbooks! Using the booklist provided by faculty, Follett stocks course materials in a variety of formats and seeks cost-effective solutions, such as rentals and used books, whenever possible. Another advantage to this partnership is that Follett will buy books back at the end of the year if they can be used again. Questions about the textbook buying process? Please email Mrs. Siobhan MacManus, Head Librarian.

OLP strives to develop mastery of 21st-century skills in each student in order that she becomes an engaged agent of change in our global society. Technology plays a critical role in the way we collaborate and communicate in that same world. OLP requires that all students have access to the tools of the 21st-century via a mobile device. With respect to OLP’s mission and the economic diversity of our families, OLP does not mandate the specific device each student uses, but rather, has adopted a “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) policy that outlines minimum specifications for whatever device a family chooses.
This policy and practice guides the use of interactive instruction and learning that connects our students more meaningfully to the world outside, and, just as effectively, the world outside to the classroom.
2023-2024 BYOD Minimum Requirements
- Laptop Specifications: (Mac/Windows/ChromeBook)
- Minimum Screen Size: 11 inches
- Wi-Fi: 802.11 a/b/g/n
- Battery Life: 4 hours
- System Age: Younger than four years
For reference, below is the percentage of the student body that uses the following types of devices:
- Apple OSX (MacBook) = 88%
- PC (Windows) = 9%
- Chromebook = 3%
