    WPHS Celebrates
    School Library Month  
     
    "School libraries provide materials for teachers and students that will encourage growth and knowledge; provide materials that will develop literary, cultural, aesthetic appreciation, and ethical standards; provide materials which reflect the ideas and beliefs of religious, social, political, historical and ethnic groups and their contributions to the American and world heritage; provide books to encourage teens to read for pleasure; provide materials to meet individual needs, varied interests, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds and maturity levels of the students served; and are a fun and welcoming place for students to go. All students deserve a well-managed library with a full time teacher-librarian to provide for free expression and access to ideas" (ALA, 2021).
