Thank you to our donors-our library project was fully funded last year! Our new flexible seating will be arriving any day now and I can't wait to invite students to try seating that will help them do their best learning.

Maker Space 2.0

This year, I'm so happy to announce that we have a whole room dedicated to our Wildcat makers, coders, builders, and creators! Students will now have the opportunity to work on long-term projects together as we continue to build a community of makers!

Welcome to the Westwood Library!

The place to be if you're looking for information about reading, authors, illustrators, Maker Space, and everything book-related.

Enjoy your time exploring the Westwood Library site and check back often for updates!
