Elementary School Library

The Elementary School Library has an extensive collection of over 8,000 titles that enrich the Elementary curriculum. Books, magazines, periodicals, encyclopedias, and reference books are available for student use. All Elementary classes are scheduled to visit the library each week in order to have the opportunity to check out books, learn to navigate effectively in the library, and develop a life-long love for reading.

Books may be checked out by students for one week. In order to teach responsibility, students who do not return library books in a timely manner will forfeit the privilege of borrowing another book. Until all books have been returned, the teacher and librarian reserve the right to reinstate borrowing privileges. Students will be notified by their librarian and teacher of books that have not been returned in a timely manner. At the end of each marking period, if library books have not been returned, report cards will be withheld. Parents will be notified of missing books through a letter from the Elementary Office prior to the end of the marking period. Lost books must be replaced by the student at the current replacement cost. These policies assist in the availability of library books for all students and in the development of good stewardship.

Parent volunteers are vital in the effective continuation of the library program. We are always in need of volunteers who will assist in the maintenance of our library. Volunteers catalog books, check for lost or overdue books, inform teachers and students of missing books, maintain the stacks neatly and in good order, provide general reference assistance if necessary, and provide general library maintenance. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer in the Elementary Library, please contact the office.

For more information, please refer to the Elementary Library Web site here.

Upper School Library

The upper school library has over 10,000 books, magazines, maps, encyclopedias, audio and video/DVD recordings available for student use. The library subscribes to 35 magazines, and back issues are available for three years. American Heritage and National Geographic are available from the past 50 years.

Classes can schedule time in the library, and students are welcome during their study halls, lunches, and after school until 3:15. Parents are invited to browse our Parent Resource Library and may check out books and tapes on a variety of topics.

Most books may be checked out for a three week period. Students are responsible to return books on time. A fine of 20 cents/day is assessed for late books due to the bookkeeping time involved in dealing with overdue books. Replacement cost must be paid if a book is over three months overdue.

The WCS library has several computers with internet access. Students may use these for school-related projects. There are also several computers with various software useful for research.

All WCS students should obtain a NCC library card.
