LIBRARY. . .Here is where people, one frequently finds, lower their voices, and raise their minds. (Richard Armour)

We encourage active study and exploration of all the resources in the library.  Our mission is to support the curriculum of Wossman High School and to ensure that all students, teachers and staff members are effective users of ideas and information.  To do so, we attempt to provide access to current, adequate, and appropriate information resources.  If you need help, please ask.  Please respect the needs of others and follow the rules below.  Thanks for your help.  We hope to see you often!
