The Westwood Junior Library provides free and open access to print and online resources to the Westwood Junior High School community of students and staff.
Our goal is to encourage reading, and promote literacy.
The Library website is updated regularly and includes links to subscription resources, as well as free resources that may be useful.
The Library has a collection of approximately 7,500 books in print (in both French and English). Online resources are also available and can be logged onto from anywhere at any time. These include online encyclopedias and over 4,000
Students can borrow up to 3 books for a 3-week period, and must pay for the cost of replacing the book if it gets lost or damaged.
There are also desktop computers available for student use.
These computers are not permitted to be used for gaming.
The Library is a quiet place for students to read and study at recess and lunch. Students are not permitted to eat or drink in the Library, and lunch bags need to be left in their lockers.
There is a librarian available to help students. This might include helping them with their research, or just helping them find something to read!
Every year, students are given the opportunity to volunteer in the Library.
Duties include checking the books in and out, and helping out with various tasks during lunchtime.
The Library is one of the largest spaces in the school and hosts many multi-class activities. These include after-school clubs, student workshops and presentations, staff meetings, Governing Board and Home-and-School meetings, Open-House presentations and much more.
The Librarian also organizes literacy programs such as the Westwood Reading Rumble; a reading competition where students read books and then compete with a team in a round-robin tournament, answering questions to determine a school champion!
