The WMS library serves approximately 430 students in grades 6-8. The primary mission of the library is to support the curriculum of the school. The library contains approximately 7,000 age-appropriate items to fulfill this mission.

Students may have two books checked out at any one time. Books are checked out for two weeks. They may be renewed for an additional two weeks. There is a ten-cents-per-day fine for overdue books. A 3-day grace period is given in which students may return an overdue book without penalty.
