WHS Library/Media Center

The Library/Media Center is the hub of learning at WHS.  Our goal is to create a vibrant center of research, discussion, reading, and study for our students.  A school library no longer needs to be a setting of silence; instead it is a respectfully quiet but interactive common area for all kinds of learning activities.  Our new Library/Media Specialist, Ms. Diana Kelly, is bringing innovative ideas to our Library with a fresh view of how to use the space and how to cultivate an environment that is both essential and welcoming.  Our Library/Media Center is a place where technology lives:  along with wireless access, we host more than 30 computer stations, printers, digital recording devices, digital readers, and more.  I took these pictures today so that you can take a peek at the way Ms. Kelly has designed the space for a variety of uses...
