Welcome to the Westside Elementary Library 

Welcome to the WES library website!  We always have a lot of new and exciting things going on here in the library!  We will be exploring new books, learning more about classics, and integrating technology through the form of iPads and ebooks!

$1 Bookfair Coming Soon!!

You are invited to our Once Upon a Time Book Fair! Your student will be attending the book fair the week of May 8-12. The book fair will be open before school, after school, and during lunch.  

A Once Upon a Time Book Fair gives your young learner access to a huge variety of books at the most affordable prices.All books are $1! Children are more likely to read the books they choose for themselves. Strong reading skills are the pathway to succeed in school and in life. Reading is the most powerful skill of all! Please join us to help make this BookFair a success for our students and our school. We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!

Author Visit!


On May 1st Autor Chris Rumble will be joining us! For students K-3 he will present a Reading Pep Rally. ​In the READING PEP RALLY, Chris uses upbeat songs, the tunes of which your students will recognize, to get kids excited about reading. He takes classic songs and changes the words around to exalt the virtues of reading.  Students 4-6 will enjoy ​The GREAT FICTION WRITING WORKSHOP is a highly interactive session designed to instill a passion for writing in your students. During the session, Chris shares his journey as a writer which began with the encouragement from Mrs. Deever(his fifth grade teacher) and ultimately led to being a published author/illustrator 31 years later. 


Chris will also be hosting a Family Literacy Night on May 1st for all of our students!


​The "FIRED UP ABOUT READING" FAMILY TIME AROUND THE (INDOOR) CAMPFIRE features hilarious storytelling and highlights the fun of being together in the setting of and ambient lighting of an INDOOR campfire. Our campfire time will include the fun, high-energy reading-incentive songs and other laughter-inducing campfire activities. I will tell some of my classic stories - and encourage some to tell theirs as well - winding up with one directed at the hearts of the parents regarding the value, beauty and power of reading to your children every night.
