The 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 also has an Instagram site, which is updated regularly with Library news, or interest stories. You can follow us @westwoodjrlibrary.
The Library has a collection of approximately 7,000 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 2-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.
Computers are not allowed to be used for gaming. There is no gaming allowed in the Library, even on students' personal devices.
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 part-time 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 homework program, student workshops and presentations, staff meetings, Governing Board and Home-and-School meetings, Open-House presentations and much more.
The Librarian also organizes programs such as the Writers' Club, and Battle-of-the-Books; a reading competition where students compete at the school, regional, School Board, and inter-School Board levels.
