Hours of Operation:
The Media Center opens at 7am and closes around 3:15pm. Students are welcome to visit before and after school, and every other day during study hall.
The WSHS Library has over 17,000 books available for your reading/research pleasure. Regular Fiction and Non-fiction books may be checked out for up to 15 school days. We do charge a fine of $.10 per day for overdue books.
We have a variety of titles that may be read in the library or checked out for up to 3 days. Each spring students are surveyed to find out which titles we should keep, which are not of general interest, and which news titles to consider.
The Westerville City School District purchases Student Resources In Context and Opposing Viewpoints in Context for all three high schools. WSHS purchases Questia for all AP and IB students. The state-funded INFOhio is available to all K-12 students, parents, and teachers. Westerville Public Library is also a rich resource for databases such as Contemporary Authors, Culturegrams, Issues & Controversies, and SIRS Knowledge Source.
There are 30 computers situated together in a lab that are available for student use. We use Microsoft Office products, so if a student has another type of software at home, he/she should see the Mrs. King or Mrs. McManis to learn how to save their work in order to be able to open it here at school. We have three more computers located near the book stacks which are primarily used for looking up materials in our online catalog.
