Welcome to the WMS Library! We are dedicated to providing our students with the best possible resources available in both print and non-print formats. Our goals are to support the middle school curriculum, teach information literacy skills, and foster the love of reading.
THANK YOU FIRST COMMUNITY CREDIT UNION!
First Community Credit Union gave the library a donation toward building our Virtual Reality Classroom! We can't thank them enough for their support of our students' educational opportunities.
The library has Virtual Reality Viewfinders so the students at West Middle can go on Virtual Reality field trips! Take a walk on the Great Wall of China... visit the Parthenon in ancient Greece... go through the human body to see how the body systems work... attend the symphony to see the different parts of the orchestra... the opportunities are endless.
Our Winter Scholastic Book Fair is coming Wednesday, February 22nd through Thursday, March 2nd.
Family Night will be Tuesday, February 28th from 4:00-7:00. This will be our first annual "BEST OF WEST" for families (especially Grandparents) to come see your middle school. There will be an art and tech ed show of student work, and FACS Club will be handing out sample cookies. Books, food, and art... what a fun evening!!!
