The WMS library is readily accessible to all students, parents and teachers. Since research in recent years has been facilitated by the many available online sources, the library focuses on promoting reading. To that end, several programs are available to students. Once a week students take turns reading to Bailey, the reading dog. Also, every week lower school students partner with lower elementary students for reading in the library. Several times a year there is a Third Year book discussion here, as well.
In addition, the WMS library page offers online resources for specific interests, as well as some good research sites.
