Celebrate National Poetry Month

Read some new poetry, fiction and memoir in verse, and make a blackout poem during the month of April. Books are on display at the front of the library with the blackout poetry creation station. 


National Library Week

It's National Library Week. Quick facts: there are an estimated 117,000 libraries across the country, from the familiar public libraries to those in schools, academies, and governments. State and local libraries employ 91,500 people full time and 93,000 part-time.


WHS research services.

  • Free PDFs of articles  behind paywalls. Sometimes you'll find the perfect article online but sadness sets in when you are asked to pay $35 dollars for a PDF.  Mrs. Hanson can usually get that PDF for free. Contact her as soon as you can with your requests. Please allow one week for articles to arrive.  Mrs. Hanson requests them right away, but the service takes a few days to deliver. 
  • Books from other libraries. Your librarians can get books from other libraries and deliver them to you in school, for free. Please allow one week for the books to arrive. We request the books right away, but they physically need to get here from across the state on special library vans. 
  • Help getting Weston Public Library and Boston Public LIbrary cards. All Weston students can get Weston Public Library cards, and all MA residents can get Boston Public Library ecards.  
  • Individual research help. Mrs. Hanson can help you find books and articles. Contact her as soon as you know you need help, so we'll have enough time to gather your materials. It can take up to a week. 
  • Help using databases and citing. The library website holds all of our databases and we recommend you use Noodletools for your citing. 
  • Book purchasing requests. If you give one month's notice we can buy specific books for your research needs. When you request books after May 1, they will arrive the following September. 
  • Ask Mrs. Hanson ( for help.


New Books

We have lot of new books for you. Please browse the new book guide to see new graphic novels, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, books about autism and more, or stop by the library and do it in person.
