Welcome To the Library!
IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET ANYWHERE IN LIFE YOU HAVE TO READ A LOT OF BOOKS." - ROALD DAHL
The library strives to foster a love of reading within our school community by offering quality literature and reference resources for kindergarten through 8th graders at The Wesley School. Our librarian works closely with classroom teachers to provide appropriate resources to support ongoing curricula. Lower school students visit the library weekly for story time and special instruction. Middle school students utilize the library as an ongoing resource. The collection includes award winners, contemporary literature, and classics. The non-fiction resources support the curriculum studied in the classrooms.

It is a Wesley tradition for kids (if they like) to donate a book to the Wesley library on their birthday. Check our wishlist on Amazon to see what books we'd like. When it's their birthday and they go up in community, they bring the book with them and share it. Ms O takes it to the library and puts a book plate inside. It's fun when kids find a book with one of the birthday bookplates inside.
