Welcome to the Westwood Elementary
Library Media Center!
The Westwood Elementary Library Media Center supports the Alabama State Course of Study, the basis of our school curriculum program, and its publication "Alabama's Library Media Handbook for the 21st Century Learner" as well as "Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs," published by the American Association of School Librarians and the American Library Association. In addition, the Westwood Elementary School Library Media Center endorses the literacy principles of the 2008 Standards for the 21st Century Learner of the American Association of School Librarians.
For the past several years, our Library has participated in a program we call Birthday Books. Letters are sent home to parents during or close to the month your child celebrates his or her birthday. We ask that you purchase a book for the Library and a bookplate will be placed in front of the book, honoring your child. This has been a very successful way to benefit a necessary part of our school, OUR LIBRARY!
Prices for the books range from $15 to $20. You decide the amount you would like to spend and then your child picks out the book to be ordered. Your child will be the first to check out this book and bring it home to read.
