Northwestern High School Library Media Center

Hours: Monday – Friday 7:30 a.m. – 3:20 p.m.

The role of the library media program at Northwestern High School is to:
Support teaching and learning of the curriculum,
Encourage lifelong learning,
Provide access to information, and
Promote recreational reading.

The high school media program supports the academic and recreational information needs of the students and faculty with print and electronic resources. It helps ensure that all students are able to find, evaluate, and use information effectively. Students may use the library individually, in small groups, or with classes.

"What a school thinks about its library is a measure of what it feels about education."
-Harold Howe, former Commissioner of Education

Online Resources

Online databases provide students with access to resources previously made available in print by reputable publishers, as well as new, expert content written specifically for online researchers. Because free resources available on the Internet vary in credibility and accuracy, libraries (state, public, and school) purchase access to these resources for their patrons, ensuring the quality of information provided. Talk to the library media specialist if you have questions about accessing these databases.
