Welcome to the Woodbury Library! This place rocks. It is the heart of the school. At times, students come to library for lessons through their regular classes. Students also drop by to borrow books before school, during lunch, and after school. The beautiful space is packed with computers.
Mr. Dwyer is our Book Master. He runs the "Wonder" Book Club. He will soon launch a 3D Printing Club. There will be Nevada Reading Week, Book Fairs, and so much more. Stay tuned: all sorts of awesome things are happening in the library!
The Woodbury Library Media Center features popular titles of electronic books, commonly referred to as eBooks. eBooks are interactive digital copies of print books. Students can interact with text by highlighting key passages, searching by keyword, taking notes, and finding information with the built-in dictionary. They even have digital bookmarks. These books can be enjoyed in school or at home through most devices including a Windows or Mac computer, Kindle Fire, Nook tablet, Chromebook, iPad, iPhone, Android phone, and Android Tablet. Follett's Destiny Discover is the program that students and teachers use to borrow from our growing virtual collection. eBooks cannot be lost, stolen, or damaged. They are never returned late and if that's not enough, some of these eBooks will even read to you. eBooks can be enjoyed at school or home, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

Our school community has an important relationship with our public libraries. Our local public library is the Whitney Branch of the Las Vegas Clark County Library District. It is just east of Nellis Boulevard on Tropicana Avenue. The library offers friendly staff and free resources including weekly storytimes for children, public computers for children and adults, wireless Internet access, a monthly book club, a private study room, a separate teen area, and ongoing ESL classes. The library also has a 520-square-foot conference room available for rental, a used bookstore, and an art gallery with regularly changing exhibits. The collection includes books, CDs, and DVDs in a variety of formats and languages, as well as a knowledgeable reference staff. The Whitney Library strives to be this community’s access to information, enlightening programs, homework help materials, and a gathering place with a warm welcome for all.
