CONNECT WITH YOUR LIBRARY
The Library provides free and open access to print and online resources to the Westwood Junior High School community of students, staff, and teachers.
Our goal is to encourage reading, and promote literacy.
The library has a collection of over 7,000 books in print (in both French and English). Online resources are also available and can be logged on from anywhere at any time. These include online encyclopedias and over 4,000 e-books.
Students can borrow up to 3 books for a 2-week period, and must pay for the cost of replacing the book if it gets lost or damaged.
There is a part-time librarian available to help students with their research, or just to find a book on the shelves!
There are computers available for student use and students can use the printer for printing school work.
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, jackets and backpacks should be left in their lockers.
Cell phones are not permitted in the Library.
Every year, students are given the opportunity to volunteer in the Library. Duties can include checking the books in and out, and helping out at fundraising events during lunchtime.
The Library is one of the largest spaces in the school and hosts many multi-class activities. These include after-school homework program, student workshops and presentations, staff meetings, Governing Board and Home-and-School meetings, Open-House presentations and many others.
The Library also organizes programs such as Battle-of-the-Books; a reading competition where students compete at the school, regional, School Board, and inter-School Board levels.
