Hello and here’s to a new school year!  My name is Susan Wells and I am very excited to be joining the Wildwood Community as the librarian. I live in Amherst and my oldest son is a fifth grader at Wildwood. I invite you to stop by the library and say hello.

I always like to hear about what you are reading!

Students will typically come to the library with their class once a week for a library information lesson and time for book selection and check out.

  • Students will practice selecting books that they are excited about reading AND books that are “just right” for their reading level.

  • Student should have a special place for their school library books and practice bringing their books back when they are done reading them.

  • Overdue notices will be sent home monthly.  Students with overdues will not be permitted to check out.

Families are always welcome in the library and invited to check out books from our school library upon creating an account.

  • Families are encouraged to READ with their WW student!

  • Families are asked to help students care for their library books and help them to return their library books when they are done reading them.

  • If a book is damaged or ripped, please don’t try to repair it at home. We have special book tape and glue and we are glad to fix it.

  • If you ever have a question or concern about an overdue book please don’t hesitate to contact me (  

The library is a warm and welcoming place.  Most importantly, it is OUR community library. It is all of our responsibility to care for our beautiful library and the awesome collection of books we are so fortunate to have!

There is a wealth of information, including how to access the library catalog, databases and ebooks from home on our library website (I’m updating it daily):

It’s going to be a GREAT YEAR! I look forward to meeting you and your WW student(s)!
