Westwood Birthday Book Club (UPDATE)

Thank you to all of the Westwood families who participated in this year's Birthday Book Club. The order for books has been submitted to the office and when the books arrive your student will be invited to pick the library book that will be dedicated to them and be the first Wildcat to check it out this year! Thank you for your patience and your generous participation!

Maker s Space

This year, I'm so happy to announce that we have a whole room dedicated to our Wildcat makers, coders, builders, and creators! Students will now have the opportunity to work on long-term projects together as we continue to build a community of makers!

New Donors' Choose Project Funded!

The Westwood Wildcats wish to send Chevron a HUGE thank you for fully funding our recent Donors Choose project for new, diverse, non-fiction books. Thanks to the generous donation from Chevron, our project for almost 70 brand-new, library-bound non-fiction books on a variety of subjects-including sciences, history, and biographies of inspiring people will be coming to Westwood Library soon! Thank you, Chevron, for continuing to support school libraries!
