1 Books & Magazines
There are many books available in the WMHS Library. All books have been donated or purchased by the school. You can take out as many books as you want, and there are no overdue fines. The library also has a ton of new magazine subscriptions, including Thrasher, Vogue, The Nation, Bon Appetit, Time, National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Wired, The Economist, Road and Track, Runners, Forbes, Seventeen, and many more.
2 Online Research Center
Aside from books, the library offers digital information via databases. It offers you all the information you could possibly need for research, for quick homework questions, study tips, as well as recreational information. You can find the library databases at whslibr.weebly.com/databases.
3 Exceptional Instructional Support Teachers
The library is staffed by a group of wonderful instructional support teachers. Each of them help students in the space with projects, papers, math assignments, etc. They are willing to drop everything and help you get that “A” on that quiz!
4 Discovery & Recreational Space
The library is also a really good space to consult a trustworthy adult (see #5), a place to relax and listen to music, study, take a test or quiz in a separate setting, or to learn something new. There are coloring pages, pictures books, craft materials, and such to take your mind off of school stress.
5 Our Librarian
Ms. Kelly is one of the most reliable resources in the entire school. She is trustworthy and is a really nice person to talk to. She is helpful when writing essays. She has degrees in Comparative Literature, Creative Writing, and Classics, as well as a Masters of Library and Information Science (which means she can help you find information on almost any topic). She is also freakishly good at typing. I always feel comfortable going to the library.
The library hasn’t always been used correctly. Often students do not take full advantage of all the resources offered to them by the school and by Ms. Kelly. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
