Materials

The Williams High School Library is a student-centered library with over 15,000 items available for checkout.

The collection includes both fiction and nonfiction books, reference books, electronic resources, audio-visual materials, and art prints. The yearbook archive dates back to the 1920s!

Typically, all items in the regular collection are checked out for two weeks. Reference books are checked out after school and are due back before first block the next school day, or may be checked out with a special due date with teacher permission.

Circulation for 2020-2021 will depend on state and district requirements related to COVID-19.

No late fees will be charged on materials, and we will work to use special due dates to allow students as much access as needed.

Damage fees will be charged for materials returned in a damaged condition preventing future use.
