Welcome to the WMS Library Homepage!

(Last updated 9/28/2021)

 

Mrs. Mathis is the teacher-librarian at the WMS library and is joined by her assistant, Mrs. Baldwin. Although we are attending school virtually right now, reading and technology lives on!  I'll teach you how to check out eBooks and Audiobooks and can help you place holds on books from our library. Then, we'll check them out to you for pick-up.  Take a look around this website for helpful information.
