The purpose of the WHS library program is to enable all students to be effective users of information and to appreciate and enjoy literature and other creative expressions.
We believe that independent, life-long learning is the ultimate goal of schools in our society, and that the library program is vital to creating independent learners.
We are also striving to bring our library and its users into the 21st century by increasing our online resources, providing more digital tools for student use and integrating new technologies into our instruction.
