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. At other times, students can drop by to borrow books. The beautiful space is packed with computers.
Mr. Dwyer is our Book Master. He will run book clubs for "Wonder" and Star Wars. He will also run a 3D Printing Club. Stay tuned: all sorts of awesome things will be 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 Universal Search is the program that students and teachers use to borrow our growing collection of eBooks from our virtual collection. eBooks cannot be lost, stolen, or damaged. They are never returned late and if that's not enough, these eBooks will even read to you. eBooks can be enjoyed at school or home, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

Our library and school 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 Blvd. on Tropicana Ave. 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. 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.
